iron wall

Posted to Action Poetry

never again
i will be silent
i will be calm when
fear arcs over my
blooming fields

never again i will
lie down in the dark
knuckle under to stones
duck in the face of
your belligerent grimace

i erect my wall of no more
i put up my barrier of never again
i weave my fence of i am

never again i will
cast down my eyes
pray in silence
and die in a humble
broken peace
