To The Promised Land

They were brought down
Down to the pits of the darkest spectrum
Beyond a trace of relief, a glimmer of hope
They were menaced, chided, and turned
Beaten, battered, and burned
Brought down past the shadow of God
Down so far that the great big blue sky
Appeared no more than a drop of rain
Falling farther and farther away
Down so far that their air
The air that at once sustained them
Suffocated their still selves
They were resurrected
Brought out past the charred chasm
That held them from their glory 
Brought back into the light
From a deep depth to a high height 
They soared
Back to the Promised Land.
