You Are Nothing - Poem by Millie Fraser

Strap me down and watch me struggle,
Bind my wrists behind my back.
I'll spit and kick and fight until the end,
I'll never surrender and kneel to your attack.
Throw me off the ship in this deafening war,
My ragged bones will stand long after you.
In your gasping world I will breathe long and deep,
I will brush the salt from my skin and I will call no truce.
There is nothing you can do,
No dagger that cuts that deep.
There is nothing you can say,
Your words of poison tumble limp and weak.
So stop this chase because I will not be caught.
Wash the blood from your hands and admit defeat.
