His unwarranted scorn 
Violated sacred visions, 
My humanity suffering 
Beneath melting words 
That threatened to silence 
My voice, 
Yet I refused to drink 
His power. 

Volcanic tremors shook off 
The invading slime of denial 
Long enough to let 
The light of truth back in. 
Where once there is opportunity 
Presented in the eyes of ignorance, 
I will not tremble from fear. 
I will take that mountain. 

Let it be known to all 
What a warrior does 
When an attack has been fronted. 
Let all the people see 
What it means 
To stand for something 
Bigger than any of us. 
I will not back down. 

Now is the time 
When forces will be reckoned with. 
Watch as I take on 
The personification 
Of one who hears 
The bells tolling, 
Unafraid to announce 
The proclamation. 

Who can say 
What fears address the 
Inhabitants of society? 
Who can know the danger 
Of rebelling against common thought, 
Choosing to seek understanding 
Outside imagined boundaries, 
And discovering a much better world? 

Still, I walk beside 
The murky waters 
Of our consequences, 
Firmly intuitive, 
And completely aware. 
The challenge isn't 
unlocking minds 
Already open.
