Our hands clasp
across this misery
we arise
There’s time now
to re-write history
To stand united
in our eyes

A slave’s life
these days are seen as free
by diversion
And yet now
entrapped we still will be
if we don’t recognise
this perversion

Our arms hold
the treasure we convey
let us plan
to recover
our freedom here this day
Show the world we
united stand

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.
