Awaken

Awaken in me desire, irresistible desire

For freedom, for bounds higher

Revive in me seasons of rising

Console my uprisings

Hardly, for ages did I find solace

And Oh! Fate and its vengeful grace

Awaken in me fire, to burn through my soul

Make me whole

I have never known much of my;

My existence, they said was a lie

Awaken in me love, the language divine

And give me what’s mine

Mine is my love, my art, my word and thought

And the battles of fate fought

Now awaken in me peace

And they laughed such and would tease

When I asked for peace, they would

Remind me of my ignorance should

Should I know that life has none

Only awakenings and battles won
