This is for the Warriors.
The restlessness stemming from feelings of hopelessness and fear,
doesn’t even begin to encapsulate the desperate longing to make clear,
the sins of the flesh and the power of the mind,
the iniquities forged against your body within a system that is blind.
One cannot imagine the feelings that depress you,
the vexing things that make you cry at night,
the way power was used to abuse and violently beget you.
Every day you live you are one day stronger,
not letting that illicit power and violence continue to stay any longer,
in your heart,
poisoning your soul,
because of you, you are able to grow,
up and away from this concrete cold inculcating pain,
higher now, towards the heavens, where nothing will ever remain the same.
And what if you are not ready to heal?
it’s not time for that yet,
you continue to reel.
It is your right to embrace it,
to stare it in the face,
to understand and place it.
Every day is a choice
The process is yours and yours alone.
You’ll always have your allies,
when e’er you start to moan.
Don’t let anyone misinterpret your truth,
you are strong, you are courageous
precious oxygen among the soot.
