Children of the New Age

I did not ever know your face
at peace; no laughter
or innocent joy. A warrior woman
you were, fierce in your anger and despair. Still
I saw an abandoned child weeping
at the window that did not look east.

We were both seared by
the same deathly grip, and yet
the same healing hands drew us back
from that far, fateful edge.

Those consecrated hands
sparked our souls, and kindled within
our hope, and our desire: to live, free from sorrow and fear.
We turned our faces to the light. Newborn, blessed, we are
children of a new age.
