Somehow saved by prayers,
The promise of golden gates
Giving way to serenity, identity.
Sunshine plays hide and seek with the moon
Every now and then going unnoticed for hours
Never revealing its hiding place.
Freedom prevails and sunshine reveals itself
One minute too late, but not soon enough
The moon readies for another game tonight.
Eager feet trust the sunshine won’t peek
Just count to ten, how many will it discover
Shadows scurry under the moon’s watch
Chasing the North Star, chasing
Life, freedom, identity, equality.
