RED Dread

RED  Dread

You are no better
Remove my fetter
Unchain- let go
Annihilate me not

Do realize
You ARE you
Because of me
Let me be

If  I be shell
You be pearl
My sobriquet
Mother of pearl!!

Why loot self
Your own turf-
You Obliterate
 Self-identity

Foolish buffoon
If I am snuffed
YOU will cease
Be not a goon

 

Wise up
Grow up
Live and
‘let live’

 

You are seeded
In my ground
Blast earth
Lose worth

 

RED
will be
Destiny
Reddened

RED sun
Red tears
Red blood
Red sweat

Wise up
Grow up
Live and
‘let live’

  1. …and so the Bricks of Abused women’s shelters are built on the blood of my Mother that were dispensed by the fists of my Father! I defend the rights of women. No longer can the enforcers of law turn a blind eye, no longer will our sisters and mothers be silenced!

    With each drop of Blood I Bled,
    With each Scream, I Screamed inside!
