II. *6 Days*

A poetry series…start here.

II. Will

Tell the children 

To keep their innocence 

Tell the daughters 

To be warriors 

Tell the sons 

To stay brave

Tell the world 

To be wary of its silence 

We’ve left seeds 

And they’ll multiply 

All by faith 

All in love 

Tell the heavens

We’re bringing more angels 

Tell the skies 

To calm the wind 

Tell the soil

To be soft on us 

Tell the spirits 

To not weep

We’re still fighters 

In this 

And the next life

-Marianne Murekatete
