Better Days Shall Dawn

Hush, dear heart! The Universe does listen.
She reads diaries and sees where you’re bitten.
Let’s not play victim; it’s not our favorite game.
Whether or not they approve, it’s all the same.

Keep pumping for better days to dawn.
Cut our losses; it’s time we move on.
I know you want more than just this.
I know that freedom is what you miss.

Permit me to speak, who’s by your side.
Let the world know all the secrets you confide.
They mayn’t understand how heavy is our task.
Rest assured, for now we needn’t wear a mask.

Hush, dear heart! Don’t wake the world.
Let them sleep till our dreams have unfurled.
