Liu Xiaobo has died

the white crane flies free
as the stars welcome his soul
that no longer can be Imprisoned
for the truth that he has told

and the reflection of the wings
shimmering cross the land
as we remember what it takes
to escape the chains of man

with a breath and a sigh
the countries propoganda can’t deny
for The imprisoned Nobel Peace Prize laureate
Liu Xiaobo has died

and his words live on as the wind
blows the dust of time away
freed at last from Chinese prison
his voyage will never fade

the whispers of the wings
touch lives in ways unknown
as the white crane soars on high
we claim the shame of those unnamed
who could not stop his spirit
from flying free to his new home
