Do you hear it?
as if something buried alive
is trying desperately to survive.
Do you see it?
Common sense and decency,
respect, trust, humility –
are all trying to find their way to light.
They’ve been buried for so long
I’m afraid all hope is gone.
I’ll reach out, I’ll be brave –
try to pull them from their grave.
I’ll do my very best to set them free.
