NOTHING ANSWERS #poetry by jay

in this land there are tyrants but we do not crumble
in this land that is our home, we stand shoulder to shoulder 
and bear the brunt of tyranny
alone

we scream into the air / the waves hear us
yet nothing answers—

in this land that is our home, we stand shoulder to shoulder
and call the name of our oppressor out loud
we take the hits as patriots—

we scream into the air / the waves hear us
yet nothing answers—

in this land there are champions that rise to battled skies
stand shoulder to shoulder / bear the brunt of tyranny 
alone

we call out your names—

we scream into the air / the waves hear us
yet nothing answers.

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
