Lift someone else up

(Sculpture in the Bahamas. Photo by @ggerbasi on Instagram )

You might bind my body
With social constraints
Drown me in a flood
Of manipulative illusions
Weigh me down with
Imagined oppression
Heap upon me
Chains heavy with lies
From the father of liars
But my Spirit will always
Find a way
To lift someone else up

E.A. Fussell
