two second delay
between having the impulse and getting your way
why should the light have to wait
to displace the darkness
why should the light have to wait
from the tip of our fingers
the flip of our switches that is our way
not just our way but our right
to escape the black night
don’t try to see through the distances
that’s not for human beings
keep moving but not
the way that fear makes you move
let the beauty you love be what you do
there are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground
