Group Poem 15 - tribute to Mumia Abu Jamal

Oh homing pigeons
flying freely over this open space, deliver this apology mail to Mumia Abu Jamal.
I am sorry for ...
Not knowing you.
Not praying for you.
Not thinking of you.
For this and that ,
for every day I lived and I didn't move forward to freeing you.
These shackles I didn't remove.
These tears I didn't dry.
These pains I didn't heal.
Justice will peacefully come.
There is ease after hardship.
I am sorry .
