Wishing To Dare

Wishing To Dare
“Wishing you Happiness!..” – What does it mean,
When you embody it right in your Soul?
Out of Monsters prepare a Meal –
Feast upon which all the Joyful be called:

Flesh of the Fears be cooked into Hopes,
All Preconceived – into Learnt, Purified;
Let Flowers cover all Gallows and Ropes,
Guns be transformed to the Hearth for the Fire!..

Words let emerge from the Smiles of the Lips
That will forget of the Grins of the Past:
Let them prepare to greet all those Least
Which were forgotten and sworn in the Past;

Happy be Wishes, embodying Joy –
All in the Spirit of truthful Repair:
You are the Chosen here to employ
What only you are prepared to dare!..
