A Devastated Country’s Call To Life
Guard the portals of your freedom
by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen
Build the pillars of your land
Merge the visions of your people
Make justice for all your solemn goal.
Rise up with your dawn
Open the curtains of your homes
Wash up the stains of blood
In front of your doors.
Bury the dead in their graves
Find the keys to forgiveness.
