I am dying, so I can live today.

“Not everything can be peaches
and cream,” that’s what my grandmother
used to say.

A penny for your thoughts.

“Slide me some skin, before you
go on your way.” You don’t need
no sight to hear the injustice,
the oppression of someone’s life today.

Forgotten shadows on the wall.

“Does it make a life not worth
anything at all?”

I am dying, so I can live today.

“I have learned, now I take
my stance,” to be silent
            no more.
