her words arrows
straight and to the point
sometimes piercing hearts

her words are arrows
not meant to wound or offend
aimed at seeking the truth

her words sharpened shafts
shot into the dark to shed
light rather than heat

arrows can be words
lined up in people's defense
aimed at injustice

words can be empty
fake like rubber bullets
that still seek to maim

words can kill movements
of people trying to heal
centuries of lies

words words word arrows
a way to say basta ya!
loosed are  fireworks
