Your written content
the way you capture feeling on the page
empower us through emotion
breathe life into the human experience
remind us what it feels like to live
minister to our memory
and most sacred truths
the way you poet
your words, spoken or written is, power.
A historical document your grandchildren
will one day cherish
resist the urge to withhold words
hold them like you once held your babies
precious and true
their bodies snug in the crook of your arm
and the warmth of your chest
Wrap your arms around this text:
Your intellectual scholarship has merit.
Let it be a legacy for the next generation
Gift them this birthright.
So we may have a right to a better future.
Let no one censor you into silence.
Not even yourself.
