Beasts in the Blooms #1

They'd spent most of their lives
in captivity,
though they never stopped
prayin' and hopin'
that some day the guards
would fall fast asleep
and the gates of the jail
would fly open.

Their prayers were answered
that they had hoped for...
they walked out of their prison
to return nevermore.

They all stayed together
to pray and brainstorm.
They helped out each other
and held close to stay warm.


He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness
for the prisoners, to proclaim
the year of the Lord's favor.
