“Feeling forgotten feels worst than dying” a poem by Eric King in solidarity with Chelsea Manning


They take away your voice

you loose touch with yourself.

If you aren’t moving forward

do we even exist?

Instagram, tinder, never made a hashtag.

Everyone is street walking

playing Pokemon Go

I don’t even have a phone.

It’s so easy to feel alone

Feeling Forgotten Feels worse

than dying.

They turned your story into a crime

tortured you for daring to exist

must have hurt those fuckers

to know so many people listen.

Flowers can grow in concrete,

can we grow in cells?

The easiest thing in the world

is to feel you’ve lost touch,

and it hurts so much,

Solidarity Chelsea
