When we were

We let the sand cover our faces,
Allowed it to stick on us, leaving traces
We let the sun roast our dark skins,
Making them as precious oil, precious skins
We let the particles glitter in the scorching sun
And our precious jewels showed to every man
Unto every creation, our teeth like gems
Which shone upon light, bursting out like flames
We turned deaf unto all negative claims of men
And looked towards all that points on the bright in us
We killed all rot that spreads by names
We revived all hope in the darkness that reigned
We pulled up a fight between bored and lively,
We decided that the two must part, and part they did
We found life in the desert that dries
We found control in waves that drive
We found clarity in woods confused
We found love in our heartbrokenness…
