Revolution Resolution

(originally written Sept 27 2010)

til the smoke rises from the fallen

we cannot call ourselves winners

in the battle…

war torn and screaming in desperation

at the blood flowing between our fingers…

while we try to bandage wounds with no supplies…

only our hands applying pressure

but it’s not nearly enough…

and so we cry tears and let them flow

hoping to flush out the infection before it corrupts

and takes another life…

but each of us is only one…

and how many can one save with only hands

to push through the blood and slime???

 

we cannot call ourselves victors til the clear smoke rises

no longer fueled by active flames…

cause we are already consumed by the fire

Paradise rises from ashes… like the Phoenix

we will find rebirth…

and like Aphrodite rising from the purest liquids of the Earth…

so will we.. someday…

but don’t count yourself out the fight just yet…

cause human hands will be more than just worthless bandages

on wounds…

human hands can lift rocks and crumble them into dust…

facing a massive wall?  then let your tears wash it

and turn it into rust…

and then crumble it inside your fingertips

and let the winds of your laughter blow it away…

 

today is the day… cause We are only human

and only human is always enough

because being human means we are more powerful

than we have ever seemed… or dreamed of…

we fight til the clear smoke rises..

no stopping til the battle is done…

no negotiations or compromises…

The revolution has more than just begun…

it is soon to be WON.
