INCANDESCENT

people dying every day every day every day people dying every way


"some folks die in offices one day at a time they could live a hundred years but their soul's already died"


or else


taken beaten self-striken


where on the line of death do I lie? do I die and die by a lack of living a lack of fighting for others' lives? or do I die in the fight for their lives?


I frankly hope the latter though many may not wish it for me


I care not I'd rather yell than cater to our "insidious etiquette of silence"


(first quote drawn from the song "Terminal" by Jon Foreman - second quote drawn from Gary Haugen, IJM "The greatest enemy in our struggle to stop oppression and injustice is always the insidious etiquette of silence.")
