How I Met Assata

November 28, 2014

Drowning in a reservoir of acute unconsciousness
I searched for a lifeline, a paradigm of freedom
And saw her face on a book in a window.

I made it a crusade to get the funds
Necessary to purchase the book
And after reading the first page
Something inside me said fuck being forlorn:

FIGHT!

And honor she who struggles.
