And it was only when,
They found themselves in respite
That they knew they had to do
Every torturous emotion,
Refusing to numb it away,
They learned
What they love about themselves, their country and community
And What they dare not compromise,
how to accept
What they should not,
For his every shameful flaw,
They found a light within themselves,
That will all,
Despite his madness,
Without anyone’s approval,
But their own
In respite, not running
They found how much they have grown!
