Amazingly Alive

The following is a poem form Vancouver street poet and activist Bud Osborn.

 

so here I am

here we are

amazingly alive

against long odds

left for dead

north america tellin lies

in our head

make you feel like shit

better off dead

 

so most days now

I say shout

shout for joy

shout for love

shout for you

shout for us

shout down this system

puts our souls in prison

 

say shout for life

shout with our last breath

shout fuck this north american culture of death

 

shout here we are

amazingly alive

against long odds

left for dead

shoutin this death culture

dancin this death culture

out of our heads
