he affirms our marriage and he affirms our genocide,

bodies discarded on red sand and green forests,

on urban concrete and in darkened cells.

he affirms our marriage and he affirms the theft of our people,

of our history and of our families,

of our sustenance and of our land,

of our time and of our labor,

of our potential

to self preserve, to resist, to create for ourselves.

he may affirm marriage but he does not affirm love,

he does not affirm love,

he does not affirm love

but we will.

we will affirm ourselves, our people,

this soil, this living, this breathing,

we will affirm who we are, what we are

and everything we want to be.

we will affirm our revolution,

we will affirm our liberation,

we will affirm our creation,

we will affirm.
