The Revolutionary Counter-Revolutionaries

Scars disfigure my
Christ-like body,
These fresh marks from
Electric cables,
Glass bottles,
Fists –
Whatever can be used
To break my spirit,
Make me repent
And cry out for
God’s mercy;

In spite of my suffering,
I will not.
I will bite my tongue,
Stand firm in my struggle
For my people and
Face the firing squad smiling,
Knowing I will die so that
The people might live.
