09 Feb 2016 – Sleeping

You thought them special –
noble, somehow not like us –
OUR ancient heroes?

If you could hear them,
they’d tell you the world’s the same,
and you’re no different.

Have you been sleeping,
waiting on some mystic sign
to get you moving?

What shall it take you,
turning in your pleasing bed?
Twilight’s descending!

You are their their children,
and they watch to see if you
have learned their lessons.

So, my companions,
take what prayers your heart’s kept hid,
and ask for courage!
