Sharing Our Truths: Many Moons – Amy Lee

Many moons I ached
Many needles I took
Many dreams I resist
Many plans I refrain
– for you

Many walks I strolled
Many looks I received
Many curses I hear
Many violence I fear
– the colour my skin

In a few moons you’ll arrive
In a few years you’ll know
In a few days you’ll still kick me
In a few decades you’ll still bear
– the colour of your skin

This unknown, this virus
This hate, this blame
This love, this bond
This dark age
– I carried you
