    The Black Man is my Sun
    And I??
    No, I am not his "Moon"
    Never am I merely a reflection
    But am my own entity
    As his light sustains and nourishes......me
    For I am his "Earth"
    Upon me, his soul is rooted
    Sure-footed
    Secure in my Love
    As I revolve about him
    For He is my "Sun"
    While I am guided
    And drawn by his warming light
    My spectrum of dazzling day and starry night
    His steady and constant climate regulates MY weather
    And also like Sun and Earth together
    Photosynthetically creating new Life
    As does Man and Wife
    As he, my Sun and I, his Earth
    Literally and figuratively,
    Nutures and feeds a covenanted birth
    Of avowed faith and trust
    And, it is also Biblically just
    That God be the Head
    And my "Sun"/His "Son"
    Deserving by EXAMPLE of his worshipped worth
    Rightly leading and planting upon me,
    His solid Earth.

    Thank you for the read, Bootzey.

    I know that you're an adherent to The Nation Of Gods And Earths. However, this piece was written from my Christian perspective.

    It's all good, though...in the spirit of poetry. No matter what our respective spiritual beliefs, we should be able to find some commonality in the beauty of the written word. -----Kinda like, "Get in, where you fit in." :)

    ^^^ THANK YOU!


    It is also what the Bible teaches...

    So, the Black man, with God as the Head, is my "Sun,"...obedient to His Word as HIS "son" and I should be his "Earth."
