Rebel Poet

armed with pencil and paper
his weapons of choice
he fights for his life
for his freedom
for his peace

penciled words
in armored script
leave trails of concepts
traces of living
gaining more territory
with every word

he battles to be heard
to be seen to be read
to have the weight
of his words carried
freely across boundaries

he is and will remain
poeta guerrillero
