“We have to flood the streets like pouring rain.
Shout to the rooftops
That we refuse to remain
Locked in these chains
because now, more than ever
we are bound by conformity.
to the way things are,
we cannot remain docile
because it is keeping us far
from our goal
and reshaping the mold
to break and decay the power of old.
But you know, just like me that it starts squarely with you.
STOP ACCEPTING MEDIOCRITY AND DEMAND SOMETHING NEW!
I can almost taste my rage,
the feeling is palpable.
My willingness to die for this shit is unstoppable.
But is it worth it?
Think about the years of revolution before,
the times of picketing and the protests of yore.
If we stop and deny our displacement today,
what we’d really be doing is dying.
so WHY NOT go in a blaze of glory?
Fighting again for this freedom story?
Instead of decaying in our hegemonic complicity
that renders us here
in quiet domesticity.”
-By Desi Self, June 2013.
Keep the fires of rage burning, comrades.
