Open The Bars - Poem by macaulay akinbami
From that square lifeless wood
I adjure you
From the breast of your capture cease.
Dare nature's will and power
To hold you still
Fight from within you
And break those shackles
Of audacious cruelty.
Loose yourself from the bond
Of death's hostility
Can you hear me?
He that was pronounced dead
Living on our minds like a dream
Stop our grief and shame
The veils of darkness.
From the grave.
The earth's empty by your leave.
Rage! Howl! ! And Awake! ! !
Empty the grave at this command
Break the doors! Loose the grips!
If there are ears in the dark,
Then out as we wait.
