Memories Remain...........Blues Stanza

The haunting dreams of days long ago,
old stories of burnings from long ago,
yet the memories remain, we still know.

Do they hear our screams through the night,
as we relive the pain each and every night
and they wonder why we'll never give up the fight.

Those days may have gone at last
although lady brings her peace at last,
persecution is not yet in the past.

And as we follow the ways of the Wise
we read and learn, becoming wise
where is the truth in their evil lies.
