We The Childless - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

let us rise
we
we the childless
let us
make exception at least
challenge
those who grin and smile
though whose hearts laugh
the descendant-holders:
rise we
see!
with us there be
many shades from graves
that arise and pray
for
many dusk their wounded
hearts
have prayed
long, long
many, many dusks:
let us rise
let do what was not done
by ours before:
this
the mark of history
we
be called to it
we
as noble as those
whose hearts laugh
we
with whom there be
many shades from graves
that arise and pray
for
many dusk their wounded
hearts
have prayed
long, long
many, many dusks
