Our hearts take rest

below the hillsides of the pain

dust collection of love fest

are emotions that wax and wane.

Who decides our fate ?

Who rights out the wrongs?

It is we who sleep in the wake

of lives that will belong.

Strength will stand upright

in your fragile angel moves ,

and in this fire I'll come out alive

nor scorched nor burnt

from the sustained abuse.

Our minds incarcerated

by the thought police

failure to appear the words of love

obstruction never released.

We sleep in the wake

when dead sharings come alive .

We sleep in the wake

with second chances by our sides.

We sleep in the wake

disarmed from the fright

that this love will escape

with the pain we have denied .

Gently touched

by your exhausted angel light ,

and in this fire I'll come out alive.
