Potraits of the Clenching and Innocent


Please, please...
let me stand,
let me stand- stand where i believe to be right
and to speak for the weak

the children-
they speak none, but i know they cry loud
i know this because i have ears
i have hands
i have feet
and
because i have a heart

let me stand my ground
LET ME STAND MY DAMN GROUND AND SPEAK

these are our loved ones
-the people

i see-
DISCRIMMINATION
INEQUALITY
POVERTY
RACISM
HATE
MURDER
LIES
WAR
PREJUDICE
-but the most i see is...
YOU

YOU-
why?
why?
this is wrong, there are so many out there
"what?" you ask?
you know damn well of what i'm talking about
you have eyes
there are people sufferring
so why won't YOU help?

let me stand
please, please
so i may speak
LET ME STAND MY DAMN GROUND

(a little girl cries that her mother had just died,
she has no food,
no water,
no friends,
no money,
no love)
-i see this
why can't you?

their faces
they burn their image
on this ground
and all i see are the-
-portraits of the clenching and innocent
