Remember

Crystallized,

you’ve been caught in the cross-fire.

Guilty by association

until proven innocent,

you are made an example of,

put on display as one of the

Despised Ones

whose value, so miniscule,

can be bent and torn and frozen

with impunity by those of another caste.

Overwhelmed,

you forget that you are one of the

Chosen Ones,

whose value, so triumphant,

is impervious to any person, circumstance, war machine.

I am also of the fallen –

let me help you to

remember…
