Reaching climes not ever thought,
the cleansing process, time has bought.
Mobility serves in striding miles
the marching feet those right beguiled.
No service comes from those left unjust
who’ve taken speech in a deafening hush.
The light that shines on all the dark,
shines bright at root and blackened heart.
It awakens the sleeping civil leaders.
It awakens the once lost oath keepers.
The vowed, silenced, arise masses and majorities;
the shunned, broken their omnipotent security.
The trumpets of a heartbeat begin to ring.
Music in victory the silenced chorus sings.
