“Matches in Hand” by Robin Estevez

With matches in hand
I didn’t burn the bridge
Humbled by the actions that just took place
Forces greater than mine kept me in my place
My voice steady & still
Allowing focus to flow
Creatively creating clarity through conviction
I will not be convicted
Pinned down
Paraded around as a fake, liar, or phony
I will be no ones show pony
I did not bend, fold, crack, or stumble
I did not mumble
I raised my voice
Didn’t choke on a Question
Authority
Maintained it on my side
Because my value is greater
As his is lesser
