From the Book: AGAINST ALL ODDS" by Armando Valladares.
They've taken everthing away from me
because they don't want
me to write
and they've sunk me here
in this cell
but they aren't going to drown me
They've taken everything away from me
-or almost everything-
I still have my smile
the proud sense that I'm a free man
and an eternally flowering garden
in my soul.
but I still have life's ink
-my own blood-
and I'm still writing poems with that.
