to those fearing woke…

to those fearing woke

my soul will not bleed
you may tear away my flesh
torture these old bones
scream obscenities
but i have learned of the truth
and understand my self-worth
so your words and deeds
cannot penetrate my soul
centuries of lies
used as societal chains
no longer bound my future
to your perspective of life
without breath or pulse
i would rather be than forced
to live as a slave to your will
