The Winds Carry The Crosses

The winds carry the crosses

Across fields and prairies

Through concrete canyons

Up the summits of mountains


They are for everyone

For the birds and elephants

For snakes and for whales

For every beating heart


They are not afraid

Except for us; we fear them

And try to get away from them

They drain our money and our blood


Stand up to those crosses

Embrace the cold realm of eternity

And when all is completely done

They were never something to fear
