Weekly encouragements to help you express yourself.

By Leem

Closed doors in broad public
Meanwhile coated in dust
Risked a unified republic?
Did you ever lose your trust?

All of us have once been tested
Some even more than others
But not all of us protested.
Only those with no grandmothers

If modern exertion of this kind,
Stresses & strains for body and mind,
Strained your trust so swift and explicit
To scream `freedom, my freedom?! I miss it!

If so, I have to make a qualified assumption
About your motives and reliance.
The union did not fail the science
And your trust never really functioned!

Closed doors in broad public
sometimes coated in dust.
In a unified republic
I will never lose my trust!
