Tears welling up, arrested perforce
Trespassing sighs, cordoned off,
Gates pushed open, with violence I close
Cruel oppression; and I laugh!.
Memories will practice sabotage,
Overthrow the dictatorial reign.
Sometimes, they will take the stage
Speak of the past, relive the pain.
Sometimes in the darkness of the night
Surveillance careless and the guards asleep,
The prisoners cautiously take their flight
Into my pillow, silently I weep.
