This earth belongs to the people

Hong Kong Students Begin Pro Democracy Strike

I hold aloft my spirit
extended to blot out
a harsh sun, unaware
its setting has begun

I hold aloft my spirit,
we come in twos and tens
neighbors become fellow soldiers
empowered, enraptured

I hold aloft my spirit
though my feet stay steady
for though time flows fast
I am here, I occupy this earth

This earth
right here
belongs to
the people.
