"If death is the realm of freedom, then through death I escape to freedom"
Which is a quote by Frantz Fanon


The title of this poem is "A Defined Voice":
 

They removed my whisper from general population
To maximum security
I gained a voice
They removed my voice from maximum security
To administrative segregation
My voice gave hope
They removed my voice from administrative segregation
To solitary confinement
My voice became vibration for unity
They removed my voice from solitary confinement
To the Supermax of Camp J
And now they wish to destroy me
The louder my voice the deeper they bury me
I SAID, THE LOUDER MY VOICE THE DEEPER THEY BURY ME!
Free all political prisoners, prisoners of war, prisoner of consciousness.
Herman wallace
