ONE ENTRY POETRY SUBMISSIONS
by William Segura (incarcerated writer)
Upending all who resist the march they fall alone
the voices are distant from the barriers we create
walls of thought and bars of steel with intention,
they are raised to obscure that part of who we are,
that reminds them of the fragile and arbitrary nature of the human condition.
Like a rose growing among the asphalt reaching out from the brokenness of the unforgiving surface
collections of word and thought offering the deepest parts of themselves so that others may know,
as they have discovered that even from within the dungeons we have built
there is hope, there is change
and despite a world that says our words can never have meaning
we see through the impact of our expression
that we are truly
