Defiance

 

Oxen flex muscled legs

pull through fields of wet

my mind pushes to resist

 

Elephants tug trees

trunks of strength

fall mighty ideals

 

Tanks crush protest

roll over heart’s soul

lone voice still echo

 

Shells silence resistance

explode life in pieces

resistance resurrects

 

My mind mends pain

my mind stitches flesh

my mind pushes to resist

 

Elephants will march

Tanks can crush

My mind defies

  1. nice….between you and glenn we might just start a revolution tonight…i like the progression in this….and a scary reality for some…not us…yet…but….resistance will never truly be silenced…

  2. “Tanks crush protest
    roll over heart’s soul
    lone voice still echo”

    That iconic image summed up in your lines.
    Unforgettable.

    The whole series of tri-lines is like a rich Xmas pudding.
    Let’s pour some brandy over it and set i alight 🙂

    I related best to these lines, They spoke to my soul. wonderful

  4. I like how you use the form but retain your voice – always so unique – always so you! The third line in each tercet is so strong, the voice of one, the ability of the individual to resist, to defy, to stand strong, to endure, to prevail rings through the poem and the vehicle adds to the momentum. Well done!
