I affirm that
I am light.
Whenever there is
Darkness, I will shine.
The breaking out has begun,
Each voice has been heard.
Reminders come and we are
Crying out to you.
to wake up
And live again.
The soul of a man is hiding in the crowd-
Every tear drip-dropping from his
A common ground devils up around him,
Coating his limbs in evil.
He withers at the fall
Dancing before lying tongues and
Screaming is the sound of a broken mind–
Bullets shaped into knives lodged in
Their veins, covering inches of skin,
Burying them before their time.
The Rage is here.
And, they say we have no manners.
We have no sense of security.
Beasts waiting at the gate of acceptance.
Let me clamp my teeth in-
There’s blood to be had.
This time, it won’t be mine.
