I elect to be a person,
A person beyond a single belief,
One beyond the rhetoric of soul,
Within the breath of truth,
Beyond the strictness of life
Amongst the people of hope.
That place, inhabited by a few,
Is a foundry built in silence
Where a soul meets life fully
In a coming togetherness
Without malice nor retribution
Amongst the people at play.
