"You Cannot Kill Me Here!"

"You cannot kill me here. Bring your soldiers, your death, your disease, your collapsed economy because it doesn't matter, I have nothing left to lose and you cannot kill me here. Bring the tears of orphans and the wails of a mother's loss, bring your Jesus on a cross, bring your hate and bitterness and long working hours, bring your empty wallets and love long since gone but you cannot kill me here. Bring your sneers, your snide remarks and friendships never felt, your letters never sent, your kisses never kissed, cigarettes smoked to the bone and cancer killing fears but you cannot kill me here. For I may fall and I may fail but I will stand again each time and you will find no satisfaction. Because you cannot kill me here!"
- Iain S. Thomas


  1. Hi Coyote,
    'Reminds me of another sayin'.

    "The most dangerous creation of any society is the man who has nothing to lose."
    -James Baldwin-

    Audentes, Fortuna, Juvat,
