There inside amidst debris,
Rubble from forgotten wars,
There lay a voice buried deep
That had been lost to time.
In pain it waited to be heard
The years turned slowly grinding by
But it stayed hidden in the earth
Far from light and hope the sky.
Screams from underneath the soil
And all the tears that could not cease
Did not reach the passers-by
And would not yield to peace.
Would the god who put him there
Broken and afraid
Ever reach a hand to clear
The rubble from the way?
