For The Martyrs Who Bear Witness

If they tell you I suicided,
It may be not because I killed myself.

If they say I went crazy,
It may be not because I was mentally ill.

If I am accused of doing all kinds of bad things,
It may be not because I did them.

If I stop talking about what I think is true,
It may be not because I have changed my mind.

If I end up vanishing from public space,
I may be still found in secret places.

If the world goes dark with lies and violence,
Look for the candles of those still bearing witness.
