Rage happens when you feel unheard.
Raging happens when you’re ignored.
Enraged is when your voice is dismissed.
Outrage is when the world decides your voice doesn’t matter.

When the world tells you you have
        No

Right to Rage
Cause for Raging
Reason for being Enraged
Standing no Credibility for
Outrage…

it Amplifies.

When the world tells you “it never happened”
it Amplifies.

When the world tells you “you misremember”
it Amplifies.

When the world tells you “it could be worse”
it Amplifies.

When the world tells you “might as well lay back and enjoy”
it Amplifies.

When the world tells you “it’s your fault”
it Amplifies.

When the world tells you to “quit making it worse by…”
it Amplifies.

When the world tells you with its
silent, unanimous consent that your
Voice, Life, Love, Loss doesn’t matter…

it

Amplifies
Rage

the place beyond Tartarus, Hades, Hell, Heaven is the
place beyond Rage, Raging, Enrage, Outrage—
oddly,
terrifyingly silent—
Silenced Voices are
Titans
chained under the collective
heartbeat, bellowing
rumbling for
Justice though the Heavens fall.

and now
Atlas’s knees buckle under the weight of
them–these
Unspoken
too-long-silenced
Words

waiting to be
Heard, Spoken, Whispered, Shrieked, Raged
into Fathers (with ears to hear)
Mothers (with tear-filled skies.)
Let them loose upon the earth—

watch and mourn the
Destruction

that
could
have been

Beauty.

Justice for some is not justice for All. 

verba mea
ex-voto–
fiat lux
fiat justitia 

roughly translated…

“let my words be an offering, a vow–
let there be light let justice be done.”

Je te vois, and as always

Peace

J.A.
