Awaken!

"In the Booth with You" - Mandaluyong, 14 March 2015
“In the Booth with You” – Mandaluyong, 14 March 2015

a new day

is dawning,

the tide is

a-turning:

awake, awake!

 

rise up

to meet

the chariots

of fate;

seize the

day,

the moment,

the space!

 

give no

quarter

to fear;

no second

glances

at doubt.

 

forward, onward

rise and rule

fear nothing

dread no one;

heed the

voices

stirring

spinning

shouting

through

the air:

awake, awake!

 

answer the

call:

rise

rally

rule.
