………………..look at my body—inner me!
“Do u see greed or do you see the real me?”
“Don’t laugh lust & lies has made my eyes
like the weeping willow tree!”
“hush, I was unkind to me!”
“eat, —I hear politely, be joyful, be merry
and dance to the great melody,”
“Begin life, you will see things clearly!”
I must feed my soul from loss with nourish food,
songs of solomon, ecclesiastes, listen to
rhythm of the congo drums, then maybe,
maybe my ancestors will open the pearly gate;
to my true destiny
in the meantime I’ll wait, sing songs to the soul,
and give thanks the Lord has blessed me !
