Some thoughts on the conflict

Let freedom ring
Once its resonance is heard
The spirit soars
Higher than demagogues greed
Higher than fences that imprison
Its reach one of voices heard
Hearts shared
Its song
One of light
One that once lit
Shall not be readily extinguished
For its gift
Is just as necessary for our hearts beating
As the air we breathe
May those challenged
Have the strength
To overcome
The obstacles of regimes
Of hate
Of greed

Dedicated to Ukraine and its struggle
