Tank Man a

The Healing Time   (1989)

 

He stands before the wheels

beneath the gun he does not falter

asks the question face to face

how can you do these things

The wordless answer loud and clear

mocks his faith & scorns his courage

but not before his face

is brushed by freedom's wings

 

and they wait once more

for the healing time

with thoughts that will be spoken

dreams that rise

they wait once more

for the healing time

No his scars will never fade

but he'll survive

 

the mighty dragon restless still

was almost grown when we were children

and now uncounted treasures

feed his open eyes

liberty is a mountain path

steep and hard where many stumble

from it's peak he sees forever

this man who tries

 

and they wait once more

for the healing time....
