In sounds and words, lilting in the breeze
In hopes and hurts, in a bruise or a scar
In the prayers of a child, flitting in from afar.
Close your eyes, let the pulse swell within you
Hold them tight, don't let a sight confuse you
Open them now, and find the world ablaze.
Feel the heat, voice your fears, hear the flames.
Know that, here, there is no beauty to be found.
