If Joy Comes

And if Joy comes

How will we welcome him?

Will we not fear him,

Will we not cower

After knowing only

Depression for so long?

Though we have prayed for him,

Though we have drank

All through our night (lifetime)

What if we hope again to

Hear the click

Of his mighty boots

On the path to our soul?
