The Rebel Within

I have a rebel inside me.
It won’t be pacified.
It won’t be quiet.

It punches at my heart,
Sends dragons to my stomach
And roars out my mouth.

It fights the good fight,
Never letting me lie down.
Never relenting

Say “NO” to sexism.
Say “NO” to racism
Say “No” to violence and exploitation – It roars.

It prods me until I stand up.
It whispers in my head.
It grapples with my conscience.

It will not be silenced.
It will not die.
It will not let me walk the easy road.

But instead it makes me march.
It makes me shout.
It makes me fight the good fight.
