then we must

when there no
longer stand
any walls to
block the sun
from where we
in our tired
comfort sleep
then we must
step forth from
the shadows which
ache beneath our
hearts like kindling
beneath a martyr’s
broken feet
then we must
unshackle the thoughts
we’ve laid upon
our lives and
dance with
laughter’s
light embrace
