    the day begins with
    the sea resting on
    moments of yesterday
    piling on the shore;

    and still

    the breeze begins to
    move in ways unknown
    to the seagulls who
    captures winds for rest

    and still

    i walk the shores on feet
    free from restrictions of
    shoes so that i can be one
    with the pain covered sands

    still

    the pains sting my feet but
    i continue my walk as the sky
    opens up to release deceit
    sharpened tears from life

    and still

    i walk head strong dragging a
    splintered filled broom behind
    me to wipe away my steps so
    others won't be inclined to follow

    and still

    the rains fill the steps before me
    as i patiently walk the path left by
    others who fell victim to repeating
    the pains of generations before

    still

    i carry on knowing that when i look
    back i see my prints are gone and
    the rains have resided to make room
    for the rainbow's promise of a quiet

    still....

    "and still"...waters run deep
    annointing heads with our ancestors laughter
    keeping us close to their familiar
    pushing into a new dawn

    i can dig it...

    One,
    Derrick Jay
