“This is for the hard men, the hard men who want to love but know that it won’t come.
For the ones the amendments do not stand up for.
For the ones who are forgotten.
For the ones who are told to speak only when you are spoken to and then are never spoken to.
Speak every time you stand so you do not forget yourself.
Do not let a moment go by that doesn’t remind you that your heart beats 100 thousand times a day and that there are enough gallons of blood to make everyone of you oceans.
Do not settle for letting these waves settle and the dust to collect in your veins”
Exerpt from Shake the Dust by Anis Mojgani
