Those Who Fight for Justice

 

There are
not enough
pens,
pencils,
paints,
canvases
or lines
to define
who you will be
and what you see.
Not enough space
in any place,
closets,
cells,
rooms,
tombs,
to contain
the voices
of the souls
from which you
emerged
with strength,
grace
and the vision
to see and power
to be.
