Gracie

When all is lost
And all have refused
The world is potential
With nothing to lose
All to gain
Without fear or doubt
No longer the victim
Your whispers will shout
For freedom comes when you finally let go
To the lies of your image
and the deceit that was sown
And you stand among-st men
With chin pitched horizontal
A man touched by life
Who learned his own moral
As you reach out your hand to shake on another
And too easily smile
For you see your own brother
And you embrace the old lady
Who knows what she knows
And you what you know
And you know she’s your mother
And you bend down to your knee
Embracing one who is smaller
And you know by her eyes that she is your own daughter.
