When Will Her Feet Dance? - Poem by Melody Thaila Kuku

The feet are locked in heavy chains,
Her chains jingle in her ears,
Sounds only she can hear.
When last did her feet move to the voice of music?
When last did they gather dust in excitement?

Only time would tell when they would be free,
For how can men understand why she dance not again?
When the answers lay in the deep wounds of her heart,
Wounds only joy can heal.

For how can a heart with much sorrow,
How can a life that has know neither peace or love,
Swirl in the wind?
Can these feet tap to Music's voice?
Can they
