Rise Again

(from In the Shadow of my Pen: A Collection of Poetry and Prose)

Cut me down like a sheaf of corn in a field of wheat.

Slaughter me like a lamb and watch me bleed.

Pour kerosene on my skin then light a match.

Bury me alive as I scratch, trying to find a way out of the earth.

Keep trying to destroy me, but you will never win.

I am a fighter, a warrior, and a soldier of war.

Do not underestimate my resilience or strength.

My sword is already dripping with blood like the ink from this pen.

Kill me if you wish, but I will rise again.
