Gold by Jude AlSaleh

Resistance,
I wear it around my neck.

It is my voice when I cannot speak.
It is my presence when I am unseen.

Resistance,
I wear it around my neck.

An emblem of Home,
the testament of generations.

Resistance,
I wear it around my neck.

Map of gold,
close to my chest.

Resistance,
I wear it around my neck.

Long breaths,
our hearts beat,
we resist.
