Indestructible: Spoken Word
Like a play on a stage,
life presents itself to us.
And like the audience,
we sit and watch.
It is not rare to be amused at
the turn of events — most times they go

dressed in her regalia parades herself on the streets;
subtly presenting herself as a ray of hope—
deceiving the simple. Collaborating with
Wickedness, she spreads falsehood in every corner; in every street as her subordinates — the deceived — go about doing her bidding.
We sit and watch as Truth lies in chains behind bars wondering if anyone knows him
or if anyone else is aware that he is there—

As we sit and watch, there’s an uproar of emotions as many take sides with Evil
with the Truth. We watch the few get tortured, threatened and are forced to recant. The ones who can’t
stand go over to the other side; the ones who stand are thoroughly disgraced, robbed
of their rights and some, even killed. Evil builds a strong force— an alliance with all forms of iniquity
and in conjunction with the deceived, they chant songs of victory. But their joy will be cut short because
Truth is indestructible;
he will triumph! And when he does, we will rise and give an

Indestructible is a spoken word poetry that paints a picture of life as a play on a stage. It sums up life into two parts: good and evil. The poem basically talks about how there’s so much evil in the world and how there is a war against truth. But despite the attack against it and all who stand for it, there’s hope in the because truth can never be destroyed– it’ll triumph. It will overcome. It always does.
