Deliverance, a poem by Ann Christine Tabaka at
Andrey Zvyagintsev



written by: Ann Christine Tabaka



Link missing,
chain broken.
Connections pass beyond repair.

Anchor sinks,
craft drifts.
Truth rises to surface again.

Lives lost,
hope drowns.
A thesis written to the past.

No one knows
which way to turn.
Paths cross but do not intersect.

Sky darkens,
rain falls.
Lonely cries echo in the wind.

Daylight wanes,
night falls.
Chaos is the reigning queen.

Hearts search,
hands clasp.
A new chain forged in fire.

Revolution fought,
ideals played out.
We win in strength what we lose in weakness.

Bonding all to love,
we find deliverance.
