Unbroken Spirit - Poem by louis rams
They tried to break my spirit and put my life under their control
But they could not see: “my heart and my soul “.
They say when the spirit is broken you have no will left to fight
And your mind cannot determine what is wrong and what is right.
I am not a robot or a pawn in a game - you cannot move me
I will always be the same.
There are so many broken spirits that are finally seeing the light
Making their hearts and souls stronger - ready and willing to fight.
The cry of the “ unbroken spirit “ is spreading throughout the land
No more will you be able - to raise that abusive hand.
The police will be there at every beckoning call
To stop your abuse once and for all.
To all the abusers: “ men and women alike “
Get your selves ready for the “ unbroken spirits “ fight.
To all the broken spirits who think there’s no way out
If you don’t take the first step, you’ll never know
What life’s about.
Many will say: “ it’s easier said than done ‘
But if you don’t try the next step may be their gun.
The first slap or punch is always the first sign
Get out of it then - while you still have the time.
