The faith which sustains us, which makes mountains move,
waters divide and walls crumble,
empowers us to fly like eagles and tunnel the land like moles.
Driven by fear and hunger, but filled with flame,
we flocked ahead unwaveringly,
guided by stars and countless crosses planted along the way.
We knocked at your doors hoping for a welcome,
but we received a response which burnt our eyes and seared our lungs.
Still, until our last breath,
we shall pray to the heavens to fill your minds with clarity
and your hearts with compassion.
We shall stay and pray, and wait,
bearing in mind that our faith gives us the power
to soar like eagles and tunnel like moles.
With humility and serenity we shall remain at your doors.
And wait. by Eduardo Rahbe
