We ran. Oh how we ran.
You must login to vote
But first we woke to the bright sun,
Rays of hope finally breaking
Through the blackest fog.
We packed our things,
Objects of the past
Thrown into black garbage bags.
And we took those bags of memories,
Put them into vehicles,
The chains of the past held firm,
His grip was so very tight,
But we triumphed in the end.
As we drove out of town
We felt those chains stretch and break.
We wept the tears of freedom
As we drove to our new home.
Never again would we be bitten
By that white beast Terror.
We stretched our new-found wings that day
And soared on winds of dreams.
His voice still haunts us in the night,
Ghostly blows are forever thrown,
And his influence still sometimes shows.
But he is forever gone from our lives.
I've tasted freedom, and I'll never go back.
I've felt the wind 'neath my wings,
And I'll never land again.
For this is my life now,
And I am free.
