Worth Saving

These shifting sands of time
Still bleeding for things unkind
Pleading to be released
From hatred now deceased
Forgiveness bequeaths peace
Reconciliation redeems love

A tiny thing
To own our fate
In the face of defeat
We choose retreat
Ignoring the lesson learnt
The wisdom gained
From dreams that burnt

On smoky pyres
We lay down sacrifices
To gods of passing gains
When hidden within us
Rusts the key to unlock our chains
