Jayne Cortez’s “There It Is”

I told my kids. Read, learn and hold tightly to freedom and dreams. Don’t accept less. If we forget we had thoughts and goals once. What are we?

The Living Ain't Easy

And if we don’t fight
if we don’t resist
if we don’t organize and unify and
get the power to control our own lives
Then we will wear
the exaggerated look of captivity
the stylized look of submission
the bizarre look of suicide
the dehumanized look of fear
and the decomposed look of repression
forever and ever and ever
And there it is

-Jayne Cortez, from Firespitters
