Stand with 10,000 ghosts

Hear their last words

Hurrying to the river

Running into the trees

Shedding this life for new


Drop your envy and yearning on the ground

Nestle your love in the rocks’ mortar

Be part of the wall that stays behind

Shelter the lost and the growing

Reach your arms to the sun and the blue
