Will You

And so today I am here.


I do not lift an axe

or pull back a hammer

I do not clench a fist

or spit acidic words




Today I am here.


In my moment

I put down my punishment

and reveal,

underneath the weight,

my bright and shining child

of the world.


Will you make your eyes big

as if you are seeing everything

for the first time

as if a child



Will you lift yourself from the normalcy

of murder and corruption.


Will you be young again

and greedy for what is yours.


Do you know what is yours.


Do you know what is yours.


Will you remember

why it is you defend

and what is being defended

in your wars.


When you rage

what is it

that you are protecting.


And when you sit quietly

-perhaps, even now, reading this –

This moment



What is in danger


Will you open your eyes

like a child


and look on the world


for the first time


Will you know


what is yours


will you see the distraction

of protection


Will you.
