this unforgiving concrete
beneath my feet
pulsed with a new beat

this hard stone
became hardwood
and my cell, a stage
no spotlight, just a hot light
flashing within me
a cool calmness washed away
as ALL filled my soul

Though miles apart
many of us moved as One
through connection
that was created from compassion

my heart
is now a part
of yours

your light
and my life
are joined
