Impossible Lives Shatter (Another for Korryn)

By Nicholas Brady

Impossible is
The distance between I have not done that before
And everything beyond the horizon of
I cannot do that yet

Ali told us Impossibility is a dare
Creativity is for those who think
There’s enough space between here
And beyond to live in

Revolution is for those who think
There’s enough space in-between for worlds
Impossible worlds yet to be created
in the distance between
Everything we know ourselves to be
And everything we cannot help
Being changed by

But people never change
We can’t win this war
Tell our loved ones hands up
Please be careful, don’t resist
Why wouldn’t she just comply?
We don’t believe her,
You need more people
Don’t clutch that gun
Why wouldn’t she just comply?

Name it madness
We call it courage, Don’t matter
We looking at another life made impossible
We debating, our breath can’t resurrect
What is extinguished can’t come back, that’s impossible

Move back or I will shoot
“no other choice” impossible rains down
On lives after shots go up
Impossible is precious little
Black lives shining and reflecting
Gems cracked by light
Impossible is the only
Black way to be

“For us who are determined to break the back of colonialism, our historic mission is to authorize every revolt, every desperate act, and every attack aborted or drowned in blood.”
-Franz Fanon
