    The religious people put a saddle on God
    Bit, bridle, reins and spurs
    kicked his sides to shuttle to and fro
    Along the track of human certitudes
    He roared
    And staMped a quack into the Earth
    Many people died
    They said
    "As a horse you're a failure
    Perhaps you don't exist"

    The religious people urged me to get on the track
    Lest I fall prey
    To dangerous freedoms
    Slipping off the narrow spine of their decrepit horse
    I grasp for the reins
    I yearn for a rule
    I've committed a great sin
    What can I buy?
    I hurry to scurry
    But I do not find him

    Until I am still
    With nothing that I can do
    And not a fig leaf to my name
    Only a core of hot anger and cold knowledge
    Pain clouds raining in between
    He, untamed and unfettered
    Touches me
    He goes where religions illicit morality cannot
    I mount up on his wings
    In the wind
    His free mane whips away my tears
    One by one

    In the Spirit of Sankofa!





    river,

    Yeah, sounds like you have been around the mulberry bush once or twice, nice piece. What I have highlighted, in my view, is most significant. Peace be still, it premeates the total surrender required to hear his voice and receive our assignment. All gifts are from God.
