and I write
to say no
to stay stop
to raise the green
and the growing
against their iron bars
their suffocation -

to say that life is more
than this,	more
than level and money, more
than the high and
the low, more
than oppression and

God help tomorrow, more
than instruction and rule, more
than chastisement
and fear, more
than the prison you

would put me in - it is
about freedom
of spirit and heart

which mean something
in the face of
all your lies
and bite -
all your dark part
