spider woman and twin war Godz

 

 


FullSizeRenderriding with spider woman and

twin war Godz born into a state

of war divined to be she who remembers

shield carrier spear chucker

hard to duck her up right in storm

moving forward like water

persistently efficient at removing obstacles

climber striver dream walker talking to the dead

i only fall forward i stand on what came before me

i do not recognize fences so i can’t sit on them

nothing divides me i only multiply my shadow

covering all the ground upon which i stand

unafraid born free unapologetic in possession of

dignity i promise you nothing you will know

me by the works of my hands moving mountains

and making crooked places well-lit being very

straight about what lies in the dark ignorance is a

good excuse but a poor shield so i bleed light

i have come to make change and nothing but

change can change that no scrambles for cheese

prosperity follows me the abundant shiny one

seeking justice done three eyed with an inability to

act blind as time waits for no one i make time to

wake the deaf and see to it that the blind are reminded

to remember what they were born knowing it’s not their eyes that

have failed I will prevail one path only forward into

change or the void i remain who i came to be

she who remembers

silently in small moments

will deliver reciprocity like the

new take out you found will

never forget its my duty to remember

its me rattling your cage

tapping on the window

resilient determined after me i

have insured there will be more

all of us riding with spider woman and

twin war Godz with freedom on our mind

forever forward three eyed

with an inability

to act blind

we pray with our

hands moving

promising nothing

save reciprocity
