Like lady liberty I will carry the torch.
For my sons,
My daughter,
For my family.
I will carry the torch.
This burning flame raging inside
For my people who have died an unjust death.
I will carry the torch.
For those lost in the wild.
For that child whose mother was just a child and knew not what to do.
I will carry this torch and light a path for those searching for a way home out if the cold.
For that lost little girl
Used and abused by men and her many friends…
I will carry the torch.
For poetry and every poet like me,
I will carry the torch.
From now til eternity
I will carry this torch…
