Silent Volcano

I am a suppressed volcano

Of silence

Where life and tainted people

Have made illness build up

Inside me

The pressure

Of swallowing shadows

Blackened bones in my closet

Has given birth to all the statistics

Black and brown are the highest

To get any illness

Healers consistently drained until

Only the negative ability is left


Focusing on external forms of healing

When we need to be poured back into

We know the language of our healing

But we have silenced it

into cancer, depression, and suffering the is genetically passed on

To our trauma induced children

It ends here, today. May we set our truths free.
