BLACK LIVES MATTER

Revolution

“ OUR LIVES BEGIN TO END THE DAY WE BECOME SILENT ABOUT THINGS THAT MATTER ” -Martin Luther King

Splittle flies, and faces are twisted into ugly shapes. I can see the rage drawing the red curtains over their eyes. Such ugly rancor, making monsters of men.

My ears ring, the world around me a distant sound. Copper laces my tongue And I can smell my own fear.

The world slows down To the single slamming pulse beating in our chests. Heads turn as though through a slow dream. It’s all a red haze; -of screaming. Shards of glass explode somewhere behind me.

Smoke. Explosion. Fire laces my lungs and eyes And I can’t tell if I’m screaming Or if the crowd is. I fall to my knees Pavement ripping palms of peace.

Tears stream like beads of fire down my cheeks. Each blink brings more pain, and the smoke swirls, Stealing away each healthy breath. With aching defiance, my fist rises, shaking.

Salt drips into my lips, I’m gasping for air And I sob through the blindness. Ragged breaths heave my chest And though darkness covers my eyes. I close them and the vision remains.

I see their faces. I see the fallen. I hear their pleas. Through my blindness, I see each of them.
