a million pieces of me lie bare on the floor.

secrets long guarded,
begging for reprieve,
shadows hiding vulnerability.
blood flows through the brokenness,
forgiveness, a desparate plea.

your jealousy built this wall
between us,
my purpose hidden beneath hurtful words.
marching onward, toward the voiceless,
i am what they search.

a vessel of hope,
their love
mixing with my love,
showering the desert with tears of belief.
hold on, the world cheers!

why, why now?
i hear freedom’s river sing,
“i need to be free”.

why, why now?
hold on, the world cheers,
“the last shall be first!”
