I stare ~
into the rot and stink
they feed me

        I pray somehow
        that it will kill me
        
skin tears   .  .
through spikes of steel
                         I hunger
                              thirst
                           I choke
          I can not breathe

                 i n   C h a i n s
        

My sunburnt back
   gives up its flesh
      
      to whips
      that call my name

      and beckon crimson
                 from my veins

           
Metal bite
into my ankles


           b l e e d  . .


        cracked lips
        kiss the darkened depths
                                       to feed
        on bits of me
        what’s left of me

              N a u g h t
              
         for the salvation
         o f  t h e   O r i s h a s’
                                  grace

       I   h u n g e r e d   n o t
        
                I refused the tears
                to know my face

        I   c r i ë t h    n o t . .

        I want
        I need
        too weak
        to feed

                              I fear
                              I feel
                              I pray
                              I kneel     

                    
                   I n   C h a i n s   !

        
        I hear them say . .

        nail his ass
        against the mast

              nail his ass
        against the aft
    
        drown the woman
        and the child
      
            
  W e i g h   T h e m   D o w n

          I n    C h a i n s  . !

No pity for them. They still don't know the shattering power that keeps us afloat with dove wings to fly and soar to liberation. Another great awareness inspirational write, Mingoao. ONE. PEACE AND LOVE.
