the stitch that took a lifetime

obliterated a bridge dividing worlds

the stitch that took a lifetime

began the healing for a continent whole

the father of a people

who rebuked intolerable injustice

a stitch at a time

is on the other side now

matriculated into Everything

seeing his life in a blink, the tortures barely a flick

27 years imprisonment hardly a dot

his radiant smile views his stitch on a patch

in a blessed quilt

that changed the pattern of everything
