Anthem of the oppressed

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

‘Chin up, fire in our eyes
Drumbeat of hearts
Roars of the lion
Here we go’

We are here, we are here
We are so bloody here
Do you hear
Oppressors
Do you hear
Dictators
Do you hear
Do you really really hear
our call for a battle
armed with pens
we advance to our homeland
Your heart will rattle
Yes, go ahead
Go ahead and ahead
Take out guns
On brave daughters
soil sons
Not a single soul will run
Perhaps
towards you only
How many will you kill?
We are here, we are here
We are so bloody here
TELL US
How many will you kill?
Graves will fill
Blood will spill
We keep coming still
Determined we are
Abomination we are
To you and your clan
Dust and ashes
Your best laid plan
To rule on our graves
You haven’t seen our braves
You won’t go far

flowers are preparing to leave their seed for next year’s blossoms

birds are flocking, singing incessantly as they are planning their journey south

and, here am I…

grandchildren are growing…words blossoming forth

trying to figure out who is the tallest and how much they have grown since yesterday

loving their Mom, beautiful in being themselves

and, here am I
