    i cannot help it

    i intend to die

    every life is divine

    To those who decide
    the fates of nations
    lives
    loss
    blood
    life
    and bone

    To those who do nothing
    but complain
    about their
    good
    life

    To those who never go
    without
    in order to give to those
    who do

    To those who realize
    precisely what one is doing
    with every action
    thought
    breath
    with their wailing tongue
    and blackened heart
    paying homage to
    greed
    power
    money
    and nothing remotely
    humane

    To those who think prayer
    is pointless
    and faith
    is an empty well

    I echo my forefathers
    when they escaped from
    one nation
    just to be treated harshly
    in another

    Crossing waters
    on wooden ships
    with disease
    rats
    no food or shoes

    I echo their cries
    as their newborns died
    in arms of Mothers
    from hunger

    When sons died
    fighting
    age 12
    for their birthright

    When finally
    they landed
    the ones who survived
    and set foot upon land
    just to be made slave

    To those who do nothing
    and sit
    complacent
    apathetic
    and ignorant

    It is for you, I pray
    For you.

    From the mouths of those
    you step on -

    from the souls you crush
    daily -

    from the cracked and bleeding mouths
    of our people -

    All people
    That suffer.

    They pray -

    For those who decide
    the fates of nations.
