Darkness and suffocation.
Drowning by the hands of a vile nation;
a sick and prejudiced society
causing pain and calamity.

Inhale confidence and power.
Exhale uncertainty and do not cower.

Choking with words
that hinder and blister,
slowly swamping with invisible cords
that press with low whispers.

Inhale courage and valor.
Exhale emotions that grow sour.

Reach the surface,
no longer a carcass,
nor an act in their circus,
but a life with a purpose.

Breathe in assurance.
Breathe out abhorrence.
