    I know you
    from another land

    head in hands crying you were
    for the past had placed it's weight on
    your shoulders and I told you
    "just be free" and you began to
    give birth to wings and caught a wind
    of seafoam green and....
    ......took flight.....................
    You were majestic........
    yet your tears continued to fall
    raining on the world
    and the soils bled
    cause time had to heal the wounded spirit
    and God placed you on his clock so you
    did it in his time
    to learn his lesson

    transferred fiber optically
    and dancing on my retinas
    and resting in my mind I saw
    you donned in another vibe
    God gold tipped your wings
    and your pen tips told me
    "Aminata's gon' be all right"
    and I smiled
    as you flew

    on God's breath
    as the tears evaporated
    with time.

    Humbled

    I thank you all but most importantly, I thank God for leading me to this place of poetic spirituality. He found a way to reach me. It didn't happen through dance (at least not the group I was with) or family. It was through my afronet/Destee family. I feel/see a difference in the content of my writing. Although I still have lots of road to travel, I know that I'm gon make it cause I have the love, mercy and grace of my Father above and the support of my poetic family!!

    PeaceLoveN'Blessings!
    Aminata
