no, revive


just die

fly in the face of the truth

make the youth chug poison and pity

spray paint my face, or on my knees to pray

I stay physically vigilant and mentally active

they may drive with blaring sirens my way

even run me over

bloodshed won’t end with my death

and neither will my soul, betrayed by breath

I inhabit another to carry on the task

the ships they brought us in did not last

the chains they bind us by fail their task

the mask they give us will not outlast

my spirit guided on the wings of ancestors

restless on my shoulders




One thought on “ACTIVIST

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
