Rise

On the Canadian elections, the Liberal landslide, & the start of some real political change.

———-

so long we have waited

for the parting of the clouds

for the falling of the giant

and

for a voice we could call ours.

 

but the battle is far from over

in fact

it’s only just begun

though someone new wields the sharpened blade

we are from revolution

and still we lie in the shadows

of our stagnant, foggy past.

 

change

promise

trust.

 

but it all comes slowly

so we mustn’t hope too much

but surely

with this change of hand

we will see

some old crumble into the dust

and find that

some new will come to stand.

 

the wind carries

an air of excitement, ignition

release of inhibition

and from passion in his eyes

we

can

feel

the

rise.
