A Righteous War Cry


I’m fucking angry, hurt. fed up with your bullshit.

I’m ready to damn it all to hell, burn everything down.

I am a storm of dignity that does not give a shit

about whatever sorry ass excuse you can come up with.

I will crush you and pray for forgiveness later.

I will respect the people you try to tear down.

I will build them up until you cower in their shadow.

I will teach them to be kind to themselves.

And when my people are safe and loved,

they will turn around and love you, and so will I.

We will bite down that bile of hatred and bitterness,

we will swear to never injure others the way we have been

burned, scarred, and scorned, no matter who or what they are.

I will purify the ground between us with fire and grow

beautiful things from the ruins and ashes of our mis-beliefs.

About thefreescribbler

My life is one of words. I am a scribbler, whose thoughts are best expressed through adjectives and phrases and punctuation marks. I would not go so far as to call myself a writer, although many would disagree. I’m characterized more by my unfinished works and half-embodied ideas, scraps of stories and parts of poems. Maybe one day I’ll be a writer, but I’m okay with being a scribbler right now. It fits my personality and style, and best expresses my aims. I’m not trying to create some lofty version of literature. I’m just a kid blogging about life. View all posts by thefreescribbler
