Wings against the wall.

They said ‘your voice shouldn’t be heard’,‘We need a woman without sound’,Then I asked my god,‘O lord, do I count?’And He answered me in short;‘Raise your voice and shout’. They said ‘we need a perfect doll’,Walking and stopping when we wantBut I am a total tweety birdSo I whispered: ‘no, I cannot’. They said ‘the…

I am.

The greatest mistake science ever taught mewas to make me think I am in the universe,that I am confined in dust,an image of billions,lost in the mirror of my own selflike a tarred road that ends in the dust. They called me nothing but dustbut they are wrong!I am the image, I am the dust,I…
