Let the clouds be parted
so a ray of hope can shine.
There is no reason to be broken hearted
if they destroy our lifeline.
Dreams are not dust upon the wind,
destiny not dark on the battlefield,
our faith shall never wear thin
with desire as our hearts shield.
We shall survive deadly nights,
our enemies show mercy on one another,
they are losing their might.
. . . .as burning flames of war smother.
Hope, our angel of mercy
leads us down paths less traveled,
guides us to the unknown lands of the free,
hate's chaos is unraveled.
Charging with brandished swords,
storming into a world unknown fate,
with scream filled skies, where doves once soared.
Hope's presence at our gate
leads a defense of our young love,
honoring all of mankind.
Victory should be thought of,
as the red blood of war blocks out the sunshine.
Surviving fierce emotions,
now our mission is crystal clear.
Thrusting ignorance back into the ocean,
far away from our frontier.
Lights shine from the north brightly now,
down upon young, reckless passion released.
Sheathing swords, loving as time allows,
enables us to create our own masterpiece.
The only fear is of apathy,
we extinguish our freedom,
by hiding behind darkened sympathies,
something forbidden in our heart's kingdom.
Timothy Michael DiVito c1985
