"If I could lift this long, black veil from off your exposed heart, and take from you that childhood hurt which you guard like an injured dog guards a hurt leg, I would set you free,"

- David Karchere | Lifting the Long, Black Veil


Original context

If I could lift this long, black veil
from off your exposed heart,
and take from you
that childhood hurt
which you guard like an injured dog
guards a hurt leg,
I would set you free,
just like Joy Adamson freed the lion,
like Madiba freed a nation,
just like Lincoln freed the slaves.

So come to me.
Feel this love.
Know this truth,
that you are strong,
you are courage,
you are good,
and you are wise.
You came to show glory
to the world and
you came to free your people, too.
