Hostage Calm Where The Waters Call Home


Like grass through cracked cement,
We move through spaces called
Difference and restriction.
These lines in the sand,
They divide the common land.
My friend, if the world can’t fit in your hand
Maybe it’s the way that you’re squeezing,
Trying to trap a man inside his skin.

How can we know what oceans the waters call home?
And late at night do they swim there alone?
Come rescue the cold.

Born under barricades
Raised high to dam us.
You’ve built up these borders;
Can your fences contain
A tempered man’s refrain that
“Color and law are not what lives in a man’s heart”?
(And yet it sets us apart)

How can we know what oceans the waters call home?
And late at night do they swim there alone?
Come rescue the cold.

Mother of Exiles, You’ve turned many away
Oh, warm waters won’t you rescue the cold?
Thaw the ice that hubris grows,
And when you break through I hope that it holds.

How can we know what oceans the waters call home?
And late at night do they swim there alone?
