Not Dead Yet

by Zen Garcia

Among you for a short time
settled in this curious role
Machiavillian performance
Shakespearean style
watch me pass this life
in grand theatrics
touching every diamond star twinkling
celestial night sky

Life weird beyond words
scenes I enter now
political forums
a room of pressed suits
television cameras
people of persuasion
able to impact laws
unjustly set

I want change
more than that I want justice
I see need in the suffered eye
of ravaged souls once
myself needing hope

Service dharma
I want help
to brothers & sisters
who like me
were once shattered
beyond description
who now face
unbelievable circumstance

Utmost compassion
I wish them strength
because I know
their unbelievable pain
the space they experience now
