Line in the sand

How heartbroken should I be
That knowing of Hawaiian Sovereignty
Would draw a line between you and me

A line in the sand, you agree is a border
But that you wouldnʻt build a wall
A bridge over a line of sand
But who drew the line that canʻt be crossed

Not separated by ocean or by land
Or a gated cast iron fence
A wrap around driveway, if I had one
You might listen more intently to this Hawaiian

This isnʻt the fault of the stars
And they couldnʻt direct me around this
Just a line in the sand that canʻt be crossed
But who drew this line to begin with
