The Castle Builders - Poem by Lora Cooley

Speak of anger
Forget the fears you've kept
Let every lonely body finally break its fear of flesh
We shook at the sight of sweat
Our worries wander like water streaming
Bright as lightning
Loud as thunder
We'll move all the hurt aside
Move up and onward
We are not our losses
We are only the extent to which we love
I've felt the damage
My love failed
But theirs prevailed
I'm only flesh and bone
But I won't let you die alone
So leave our hearts locked in stone
Roll it upward from the earth
For all the bad that seems to plague us
A promise to speak of the love we lost and what it cost us
But we kept on
We were strong
We stayed bright as lightning
We sang loud as thunder
"We are not our failures. We are love."
