These Tears

these tears
you feel
streaming down my face
were baptized in anger.

stolen
raped
lynched
sexualized
ridiculed
demonized
feared
murdered
shamed

and that was just yesterday.

i don’t know
if i can forgive you.

i don’t know
if i want to.

ancestral sins haunt us all
but your
continued wanton lust to
dominate
weakens you and
hath awaken the fury,
and the fire
within
me.

within us.

and all of hell’s glory
shall rain
upon your misguided,
twisted, and
vacated souls.

still then
i don’t know
if i will forgive you.

i don’t know
if i will want to.

these tears are not to soften my fear-
these tears will wash away the blood to come.

so let us tumble together
along this
slippery
descent
into Oblivion.
