The furnace of the soul slips heat and light past blind shutters
Isinglass and iron can’t contain bright burning thoughts
Ideas heed no boundaries and information seeks freedom
Someday all souls will be freed.
Written for Aung San Suu Kyi, Father Thadeus Nguyen Van Ly, Zhang Jianhong, Ahmed Batebi, Zou Tao, and fifteen British sailors so far from home on foreign, maddened shore.
