Hannah L Stone

this is where I write the light




I bleed down to the roots of all that I am
just to prove to you –
to prove
that the politics of my skin
will not bind me;
to prove
that I can see past the
weeping willow branches
of injustice that
bend so low they touch the river below.
The river that carved
a line in the earth
between us;
a line that divided and carried
truth away on its current
and smashed it on the rocks
until it was forgotten.


I’m going out on a limb here and over the next several months will begin sharing more of my writing that I normally keep hidden. ¬†Like poetry. ¬†{insert big ‘ol held breath here}
