Stand As One

wedged
between stone and dust
people find their voice;
a whispered word
rises
to ring true
across continents

open eyes
won’t be forced shut
by the sting of tear gas

angry hearts
won’t quench their thirst
in submission to TOMA

stand as one –
kill
your fear of authority
and grasp the strands
of a new Era –
under the world’s watchful eye.
