Sage and Rage
Muertos con Muertos
Ancestors roaring winds
Steps taken to stop the continuous happening
WE ARE NOT FREE
Not 1 people on the shore of any sea
This is not a fucking game
There is humility in understanding you have it BETTER than those Muertos floating shoulder to shoulder above Rage
Kissing the smoke of Sage
Cleaning the way for cries to be heard
Purifying Hurt
Healing with every window smashed
Every flame
Every chant
Every held back reaction
My Muertos walk with Your Muertos as they watch their descendants
Us
Our RIGHT NOW
Still
Being made to feel lower than
WE RISE UP
Our lifelines our lifetimes our wisdom our tools our weapons our grace is the reason why they can coexist
Sage and Rage.
You will see
We will change the day.
