Downtrodden

Shhhhhhhhh……….

he might hear us

he might condemn

do not let him near.

Be careful.

His thoughts are not ours

his anger

his whiteness

is not the world’s truth.

Stand tall

speak your mind

do not allow him to rape

the cosmos that he feels he owns.

Do not allow him to destroy.

Rebel

stand up

do not let him crown himself king.

Rebel

speak loud

or forever shall we kneel

before the false prophet.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
