Poetry: We Dare

We Dare

Dare we feel?

This is the time.

Dare we think?

This is the time.

Dare we speak?

This is the time.

Dare we hope?

This is the time.

Dare we reach.

This is the time.

Dare we dream?

This is the time.

Dare we stand?

This is the time.

Dare we breath?

This is the time.

Dare we pray?

This is the time.

We are free,

And we dare.

    Nice well done. I can add:

    Dare we speak when we know we are in the minority?

    Thank you, Annette. Poetic questions for the moment and for the future. Let’s hope the answers are all “Yes”
