Swans

Swans,

birds that make no sound.

Yet,
according to legends,
will sing a most beautiful
Song,
at the time of their death.


There was another
who spoke
lyrics to the
Ultimate Song,


that changed the world.


Surrounded with darkness
and blood—“It is finished!”


Changed history,
Changed the world,
And can change your eternity.


But only if
you—forfeit;
will,
pride,
vanity,


and take up your cross.


If only you—like swans,


Sing.
