Poem for My Comrades.

In the wake of this most recent example of our structurally white supremacist patriarchal capitalist heteronormative society, I want to share this. I wrote this a while ago, but I think it needs to be reiterated.

Abridged.

We Speak Loudly,

in subjugated voices.

Once because we had to,

now, to gather force.

There is indeed a collective force growing strong,

to speak truth to power.

We may have been forced to the periphery

for many years,

to be utilized as the refuse you needed to thrive on,

but we were slowly and steadily building momentum.

We will NOT continue to be marginal for you,

for we KNOW we play an integral part in centering your truth.

We also know it is our collective force that will lead to your demise,

White Supremacist heteropatriarchal Capitalist hegemony,

we call you by your name,

where your truth lies.

We are gathering our forces to rupture your normativity,

and no,

we will not be weakened by your attempts to divide us

through your normative creativity.

Written by me.

Live in that rage, feel it coursing through your veins. Stand in solidarity with your comrades. The struggle is real.

Until Next Time,

-D
