There is strength in numbers-
Many alone sleep, alone wake, alone
Take on the day, surrounded by love.
I can trust you, yes? I can
Trust me alone–my mind
Lies and lays a snare of which I
Cannot break free.
Generation after generation of families
Full of politicos rallying for
Domination over destiny.
My destiny has been defined by
The struggle to overcome the
Entrapment of family and mind.
There are days I stand tall
Against the wind’s force–
And others I am toppled by your whisper.
Life is a misery of mystery
Of love and peace and struggle and love.
