Rebelling Youth

Corinthians- we in the past, themselves, sentences to be…

we the youth of a dying democracy have no faith left
in these old men who accepted all the mistakes of the
past within the scope of their job description

ourselves, rise only to better the future of our children’s children, their life
sentence—surrounded by destruction—their homes family’s friends—death will
be a frequent visitor with no condolences in that norm

only their faith will pad the inevitable losses, so we teach them as our mother’s
did, we catapult our voices towards the world’s vaulted skies, in hopes that we might be heard by the God those old men have forgotten to fear
