Day 239 (Shawnee)


Author Comments

don't speed this up,

don't do it,

you won't wanna hear it tho


I mark

The water with your name

Burnt out the flames

Disbarring our lives


We enter the ember in the air around us

Our lungs collapse underneath the vaporwaves

We know

What must be done


We know

We aren't alone

Know the price that we pay

On the edge of all that we've made


Know the temples fall in our grace

We try to refrain from genocide again

Cuz we are more than afraid

Of what can be done, with what we say


We know what we are

No matter what

We know what we say cannot refrain

From being heard


Immortalize our pain

Remember that you are the same

You grant us the permission to enter this dimension

With no restraint


Our bones begin to heal

In the silence of life

Those who try to steal the flame

Of our lives


Are cast from this fire

We don't remember

What their voices

Meant to us now


We aren't the masters

But we are alone

We on the frontier

Of someone else's home


We manifest death

Because death is but a word

We live so deep inside this dream

Our words no longer mean a thing


No what we are now that there is nothing to stop us

From going over the edge of our own minds

We aim to run through these lands and fall of the side

Never to return to this flattened plain of existence


Begin to question

The words you hear

What do they mean

In the face of fear
