This is for Gav Roberts

———
We feel the weight of this life bearing down

 On us but still we rise again and sing

The songs of victory. We dream. We dream.

But still the world continues.

We choose our words. Our friends applaud and we

Rejoice. Because they heard us.

Maybe now

Something will start to change:

Perhaps today 

The first blow will be struck. Our words unleashed.

We wait. And once again, nothing is said.

 

I feel the weight of this life bearing down 

On me. I try to rise again and sing

I think of you. I know that I can fight

With you beside me. Even when it’s hard.
