Get out of the way!

Don’t encourage how to say!

You can only point the way.

The healing will come to stay,

forging a path for a brand new day.

Each soul knows when they are ready to play.

A voice like a lion

will have much to say.

Written by D.L. Lang at the Bay Area Poets Laureate Gathering
