turn the cheek, piety, poor

“I won’t turn the other cheek.
I want you to see the bruise you created.
I won’t turn the other cheek.
I want you to see the bones you cannot break.
I won’t turn the other cheek.
I want you to know that i cannot be broken.
I won’t turn the other cheek.
I want you to understand that you are a person…just like me.”

“Jesus said that the meek shall inherit the earth.
I see the meek getting earth jammed down their throats.”

“i’d rather die a poor man with a clean conscious,
than a rich man without one.”

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
