“We are so much more” a poem by Eric king

We are so much more

than the suffering we absorb

as they beat us & keep us

from the people we adore

We are so much more

than the poison which they pour

down our thoats while we choke

and spit it to the floor

We are so much more

than the lables that they force

with our make-up, fighting rapists

laugh as their teardrops form

We are so much more

than the info they store

on our friends & on our movement

while they’re kicking down our door

We are so much more

than the lies that they burn

into our brains, try to train us

but we will never learn
