12:40

Let us march.
But first
let us wander.
Day and night we’ll run
in circles
around ourselves.
Day and night we’ll dance
but only around the truth.

Let us wander.
Let us have children
who may never know
the land of their fathers,
the fruits of a promise,
the story of redemption.

They might die here.
Because of us.

Us–
Us–
Us–

All because of us.

Step by step,
night by night,
day by day
we wandered.
We grew old,
we came
we went
we lived
we died.

We lived.

My child celebrated
his 40th birthday
the day his dreams came true
and mine.

I was banished
But he will enter in
and my children’s happiness
is my own.
