Caress the words, put them to sleep
Sing them a lullaby and send them off to bed.
For a better tomorrow, a new story.
A fresh start, another beginning.
Spinning words, entwining lines on paper
Putting ink dots, crossing all the T’s
In a single file, like military.
Words will rise, from the ashen mouth
Words will rise, like the sun in the sky
From the womb of the horizon and shine.
