“I embraced the vibe of fear from those above, the ones I trust,
Bonds traced in bloodlines, victimised ancestory,
Pride in who we are, this place, in ancient soils we carved ourselves,
We sew our legends and our myths into flags of faith.”

We spend our nights huddled in thanks and guilt, terror and respite,
Sharing news of who is left.
Before daybreak we leave the school and hide the weakest first, those of us who still have the will to hide.

“From the shattered universe of my victims, I looked up for the ones I trusted,
I found only accusing eyes.
Heads shake in violent disbelief, too far up and away to appreciate the horrifying landscape I found myself in.”

Covered in mud and torn rags we emerge like ghosts of those left behind rotting, left as proof.
Some talk of nothing else, their lives are burnt, raped, and the memories of the ‘before’ can hurt just as much.

Faces we recognise and questions we all have are rhetorical, such as “why did they cross their arms and watch?”
Dreams of this nightmare render screams, otherwise mute and distrusting. In this place, justice can go the way of God.
“You could fall too.
Do you see how I fell?”…..
