Unlocked doors like prison walls
Watch hard and well their charge;
But forget what tiny fists can do
To sturdy iron bars

Small hands fit between the bars
Find what is above
Engrave deep in their memories
Freedom, life, and love.

Unlocked doors like prison walls
Watch hard and well their charge;
But forget what stronger spirits do
To sturdy iron bars

When anger turns to suffering
When wants now turn to needs,
A presence grows inside you –
For these memories it pleads –

Unlocked doors like prison walls
Watch hard and well their charge;
But prove themselves incapable
To hold up their iron bars

Destroyed by thin weak body
But now own life condemn,
Doors broken by the hatred
The dark key that once locked them.
