They had to break us 

To make us 

Beacons of light

Formed through the rough unrelenting hands

Bending to their will

Short-lived lives of men 

They waved us in surrender 

By the flickering remains 

They collected us in boxes, threw us to fire 

Not knowing we would bathe them in our flames

A message from the oppressed.
