They will not hold me back

Reverse

by W.A. Jackson

Forward, forward, forward

Today I will move forward

The words spill from my mouth

Tumble down my breast

Land to be ground into the earth by my foot

But forward is difficult

I’m being pushed back

Shackles tangling around my ankles

Fingernails clawing at my cheeks

Voices clouding my mind

Forcing me in reverse

But I will move forward

They will not hold me back
