    no i have not taken you
    across the world and over the sea

    but try to envision my love climbing
    the highest peak of the highest mountain
    to collect the freshest air for you to breathe
    cupping my hands in the freezing stream below
    to place before your lips the coldest purest water
    gathering passion fruit and berries growing wildly
    in the valley, to nourish your body
    plucking the softest stars from the night sky to tuck beneath your head
    turning down the moonlight so you can sleep peacefully

    to create an entirely new existence for you
    one where you can immerse yourself completely
    in the only thing that confirms life for you
    the source of your energy, your life force, your blood
    your one true soulmate --
    your Art

    the only thing my love desires is for you to feel alive
    and is showing itself tonight to say,
    precious black man
    you are cherished and adored
    and have the right to survive

    All love,
    Kiwanda
