her

BY iraj

 

we come from those with

magic burning in their chests

and rebellion in their throats,

 

we come from those with

wolves trapped in their bellies

and fire in their eyes,

 

we come from those with

chains on their feet,

yet, revolt on their tongues,

 

we come from those

who screamed & shouted, 

for those with no voice

 

we come from those who

became the very flame

that ignited our revolution. 

 

this is for you:

the wildest of the wild,

the bravest of the brave,

the fiercest of the fierce.

 

I come from you, 

you, both fire and flower, 

both storm and sun, both

war and woman.
