Stare it Down

Nothing can crush you

With face on floor

Nails jutting upward

Clawing

The wall leaving streaks

In plaster as boots

Stomp you

To the rocks below

You hit and break

The hold and eyes

Blink out blood

To see a face

In silhouette

The oppressor

Flinches with fear

From your steady stare

Blinding binds and boots

Crumble to sand

Stand and stare

With drowning light

Unblinking eyes

Wordless mouth

Hour after hour

Round after round

Stare it down

Stare it down

Stare it down
