Words and guns
which yields more power?
i can create a world where guns and bullets
are like suns and droplets
I can call into being the spirits of our forefathers
to open our eyes to a time
before the white man, before the railway lines
for before the world was
the word still was.
I can close my eyes and see
a time before the sunrise of my being
step into worlds I have never been
Touch and not feel the sting of a bee
imagine a world that will never befor with wordsi can create and let it be.
I can create playgrounds in concrete jungles
where kids can touch the grass and throw marbles
my stories of our heroes
gone and living
will grow them from boys to men
from girls to women
for with words
I can change their destiny.
Words on pages
are a declaration to the living
We were here.
