Occupy My Mind

The lies
The fear
The tiny puddle of water called tears
The people
The tradition
The fight for what's right
The determination
The voices
The fist of silent words
The protests
The arrests
The greenback to freedom
The wonder
The joy
The fall, but getting back up
The me
The you
The way of life through the years
The living
The dead
The people who fight for voiceless souls

I stand
I sit
I cry
I scream
I succumb to numbness
But I will never give up
I wait
I learn
I wonder
I hear
I see with both eyes
And the truth appears

Where do you fit in?
What have you done?
What will you do?
Will you go on?
