Unlocking - Poem by Pamela Davison

His unwarranted scorn
Violated sacred visions,
My humanity suffering
Beneath melting words
That threatened to silence
My voice,
Yet I refused to drink
His power.

Volcanic tremors shook off
The invading slime of denial
Long enough to let
The light of truth back in.
Where once there is opportunity
Presented in the eyes of ignorance,
I will not tremble from fear.
I will take that mountain.

Let it be known to all
What a warrior does
When an attack has been fronted.
Let all the people see
What it means
To stand for something
Bigger than any of us.
I will not back down.

Now is the time
When forces will be reckoned with.
Watch as I take on
The personification
Of one who hears
The bells tolling,
Unafraid to announce
The proclamation.

Who can say
What fears address the
Inhabitants of society?
Who can know the danger
Of rebelling against common thought,
Choosing to seek understanding
Outside imagined boundaries,
And discovering a much better world?

Still, I walk beside
The murky waters
Of our consequences,
Firmly intuitive,
And completely aware.
The challenge isn't
unlocking minds
Already open.
