No Fear Here

“There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure truth.”
―Maya Angelou

No Fear Here

by Carmen H Gray

Correlation does not equal causation

Therefore, your extension of fear

Is your absolute right, not an aberration

At least that’s how you can justify

Our collective disentegration

Because you must protect yourself

From a self-induced violent escalation

In this country birthed from rape and guns

We have created our own damnation

The past is not that

It is present in each generation

Whispering “this is from whence you came”

A closed circuit of continuous rotation

But what was closed by the hand of others

Can be opened anew by confrontation

Splintering into another

Incarnation
