I Am More By Tamir A. Shaw

in that moment
it all became so clear
nothing would ever be the same

those words
from whence did they come?
everything we were
vanquished into obscurity

same team?
our focus was not unanimous
my miniscule successes were amplified
my joy causes you pain?
your excessive failures became pressurized
who lit the wick?

there is no future to be had
you gave up on us
it all ends today
