I Am Not Afraid

Poke my eyes out
Cut my tongue out

Break my bones
Tear my flesh

Burn the books
Ban the screens

Block the internet
Drape lies as truth

Put me in prison
Call me an anti-national

You can do everything
You have the power

Yet I am not afraid

You can break my body
How will you break
The courage that I carry?

You can threaten my body
How will you threaten
The soul that is free?
