I Am


I am the footprints in the dust
I write the strike signs with my blood

I am the spirit that moves the man
You are the death rattle of the government

I am the footprints in the dust
You can’t see me but I am there

I write the strike signs with my blood
You spat out “losers” I was there

I am the spirit that moves the man
You are the death rattle chocking me
