Purity Against Resolve

In the end, it will be you
Making up the stories of this world-
And if what is true and good,
Is what brings truth and goodness,
Then love is the only lesson worth learning-

For we love as we are,
Not as we're told-
And there's courage and there's fear
And so what?
Freedom is no orphan-

But there is sacredness too,
Lying impervious in some forest clearing,
Out beyond the shabby walls of progress-
Or staring into you like a lover,
Dreaming, as you dream, of happiness-
