I Do Not Deter

SunflowersSo they use

the most tender weapons to fight with

joy stealers

hate mongerers

to break down our will

yet step by step;

We remain undeterred.

We do not subscribe to the malcontent

malicious intent

hell bent

pent and trapped

the definition of misery.

We do not deter.

We choose love.

We choose life.

We choose to keep this bitch moving.

I do not deter.
