"Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter."
-Dr. Seuss

Ring the bells
The bells of freedom
For they represent the celebration
Into the church they come
Stilletto heels and lipstick
Fussy ties and sweat
Light footed children run
Gathering around
For the grand celebration

Two white dresses
Four teared eyes
Twenty fingers intertwined
Songs of promise
Silver loops of eternity
Before them all
Before the One

Oh, how my heart yearns
For the universes to aline
Heaven and earth joined at last
Through the bonds of equality
And peace

When I wake in the darkness
Locked in my cell
I cry
Not tears of sadness
Or loneliness
But of grief
For what could be
If love prevailed

She's beautiful, you know
Joyous and light and akward
Can you imagine her
With the long dark vail
Soul shone through chestnut
A playful smile
With no idea
