DVAM Code-Purple: Day Twenty Four

This will scream inside of you.
It will choke you
into a silent slumber.

Learn to speak,
and withhold the darkness.
Do not let it destroy you.

You have the strength
Of every man, woman, and child
who has risen from the ashes.
You are the voice for those
who have been buried
by these secret wounds.

Hold them up to the light of the world
so others may learn
from their ominous example.
Show us all the danger
that power can hold
above the lives of innocent,
loving souls.

Do not let it destroy you.
