Take A Knee

they’ve been crushed, they’ve been broken
they’ve been beaten to bits
they’ve endured things unspoken
taken so many hits

but they’re there still, they’re waiting,
they’ll be rising up soon
yes, they’re there still, they’re ready
to shoot for the moon

they are kneeling, those heroes,
once brought to their knees
in pain and in torture
in terror and screams

now they’re kneeling, those heroes,
crouched, ready to rise
in power and triumph
the phoenix will rise

משפחות האדמה כורעים מתחת – families of the earth kneel below

Day 10 of NaPoWriMo!
