Cry! Cry! The Silence - Poem by Fiona Burgess

Cry cry the silence
'Set us free
We want to be
Don't leave us to drift
Lost at sea.'
Cry cry the silence
'Step back aways
Remember the days
The sun came out
Such blinding rays.'
Cry cry the silence
'We've weathered the storm
Removed the thorn
Though eons have passed
We no longer mourn.'
Cry cry the people
'We're free at last
Though chains haold fast
Our spirits now fly
Through ages past.'

Bind the body, free the soul
Though time so fickle has taken it's toll
Now we can be free and whole.
The wages of sin have passed us by
Through stars and galaxies now we fly
The world beneath can shudder and cry.
