ever present like the wind

sometimes a warm, soothing breeze off the ocean

other times a cold, harsh gale sweeping from the north


banished from the King's court

I flee to the far away island for sanctuary

I am everything you banish to the dark recesses of your soul


highly critical of the authoritarian, political state

a refugee in my own land

listen to the protest songs of the past and the age old teaching
stories


Dance:
chimes of freedom

march forward

into battle

killing

death

weeping

fleeing away

stopped by walls

tortured social death
