Michael Smith – Sunday

Prescient words from Michael Smith who was murdered in 1983 because of the words he spoke.
Trinidadian poet, John La Rose, said he “came across our sky like a comet, and vanished.”

Sunday

I sit
Sunday

not meditating on
people clapping
shouting
meek
shall inherit earth

but meditating
freedom

I
shall not die
a natural death
but fighting

Michael Smith
