RADICAL

She was ageless–
A star among seas,
A sky among land.
She could not be defined
So they defined her themselves:
Strange;
Different;
Radical;
Unacceptable.
They poured water on her fires,
Threw a blanket over her sun;
Stifled the life from her.
Only after she was gone
Did they realize
She hadn’t been the one that was
Strange;
Different;
Radical;
Unacceptable.
She had a different definition to live by,
One that was perfect.

No.
They were the ones
Who were
Lightning flashes amongst sunbeams;
War amid peace;
Dead among living.

They were radical.
