    feel this...

    BLACK NIGHT BRINGS ELECTRICAL GRAY
    STORM CLOUDS
    CRACKING WITH COLD RAIN INTERMITTENT FLASHES
    SHOW ME
    POSES OF BROKEN BRICKS TWISTED TREES
    FURTIVE MOVEMENTS
    IN GNARLED UNDERGROWTH
    GROWING CLOSER
    BREATH ON NECK
    CLAW TEARS FLESH
    CRASH THROUGH THE NEAREST THICKET
    FLESH WOUNDS GO UN-NOTICED
    EYES SQUINT AGAINST FLYING DEBRIS
    ALL THIS
    IN... ME.

    FIRST LIGHT BRINGS BATTERED LANDSCAPE
    BRONZE SUN HITS CLOSED EYELIDS
    WATER DRIPS HIT WOUNDED SCALP
    FROM THE LEAF OF ALOE...SOOTHING..
    SHOOK AWAKE SHAKING
    STUMBLE TO A HIDDEN BROOK
    PARTAKE OF WHAT WAS GIVEN SO HARSHLY
    DURING THE DARKESS HOUR
    FRUIT FOUND ON FOREST FLOOR FLUNG FROM SKY HIGH
    STILL SHY FROM NIGHTS BEATING...

    ...SNOWY CLOUDS DRIFT THROUGH.....AS A REMINDER.
    BE GRATEFUL FOR THE LESSONS OF THIS LIFE...
    WITH THE DARKNESS COMES THE LIGHT.

    Grateful for Today
    Salaam Shabazz
