Poem: Justice/Injustice

Justice,
Injustice,
They will lock you up,
For not fitting in,

And we can feel the hands on our faces,
The ghosts,
The arms holding us down,

We are all "sinners,"
Dormant dreams,
Die,
Alongside railroad tracks,

And the train moves,
Slowly,
The sound of the coupling rod,
Side rod,
Piston rod,
All making a sound,
Rust,
Rusting,

A thousand screams in our souls,
Can't be released,
Can't be released,
Can't be released,

A thousand screams in our souls,
The bars are around us,

We want freedom,
To speak,
To live,
To be ourselves,

The burden feels insurmountable.
