Affirm life

Suheir Hammad, from Brooklyn, NY by way of Palestine

(Submitted by the author)

Anyone reading this is breathing, maybe hurting,
but breathing for sure.
and if there is any light to come, it will
shine from the eyes of those who look for peace and justice after
the rubble and the rhetoric are cleared and the phoenix has risen.

affirm life.
affirm life.
we got to carry each other now.
you are either with life, or against it.
affirm life.
