Sharp radiations burnt skin that hurt it not
Homeless souls shivering from the lashes of cold rain
World’s walls stopping birds navigating new terrains
Strength, raped to bear exhausted offspring
How the helpless bleed of captivity!
It is the light of this darkness that blinds me
Master strokes that tear the dry flesh of the weary
Where do I seek redress when Oppression is the law?
How can my wounds heal from this continuous scraping?
Like a lamb, I lay lame on the priest’s altar
My sole is sore walking an arid plain in dry weather
A broken bone further burdened into grains
I am a force that can’t be forced
A believer of the unbelievable
A broken piece that fights to find its pieces
Relentless is my true length; can’t be stretched
Like a tide, this heart breathes against motionlessness
Though dirt on my hue sits, a human I will not stop to be
The survival instincts shall survive
Weakness can only live to sell strength’s story
