“If you let them kill you – they will”
Bukoskwi

If you let them steal you in not so

easy to pay instalments – they will

If you you let them write your words and

make your path – they will

If you let them laugh at your dreams –

they will

If you let them tell you that you ain’t

worth shit – they will

If you let them laugh at you – they will

If you let them ignore you – they will

If you let them gore you – they will

If you let them kill you – they will

Again and again and again

I have let them steal me, write my

words and make my path

I have let them laugh at my dreams

and tell me I ain’t worth shit

I have let them ignore me, let them

gore me, I have let them kill me

But they won’t anymore

They will have no more of this poem
