Truth Won’t Sleep

my heart

bruise mode

countenance on alert

racial injustice

constructed to hurt

US…..my county ’tis of thee

result of cause and effect

We, sardined in Middle Passage boat$

quarantined, milked welfare cheese

then denied the right to vote.

Coretta’s spirit is tempestuous

Ancestors’ tears aggravate our seas

you confederate flag wearing miserable skeletons0361.jpg

worse than a bag of fleas…karma

I AM THE HILL AND THE MOUNTAIN 

that you once held down, whipped, and kept blind.

We.. are screaming now for you to cease

and desistInside out

Before we are rewound back in minus time.

I am the Hill and the Mountain

Enemies attempt to climb, I am far above in my psyche

Love is the only friend of mine.©mushroom gatherers

Lord, Do You Hear Me?

Whenquiet's Blog

LORD,

You must be tired of the black mamas/papas wails of grief
Ricocheting off streets of gray concrete.anna_s-15 copy

Chaos unisoned

in conflicting waves
Skeletons of past discord
Rattling as the war is waged.

Lord,

You must be tired
Of seeing black hands against the wall
Up in the air
Bodies fall
Blood seeping into ground….

profound…

Mingled with water.
Recycled to quench thirst of murderer’s daughter.

Lord, you must be tired
That their puzzle’s still left undone
They still don’t get
That Jesus is your son.

Lord, I am tired
of seeing the same ol’ script
Today a gun
Yesterday, a whip.DSC00017

And now, Lord,

with the monsters that plague my t.v. screen and my dreams,

Where do I leave my heart? In which forest do I scream?

I wrote my Senator

expressed my concern,

I think even he knows

The SWAMP is getting ready to burn.

I am tired…

Sunday Morning

On this early Sunday morning
My heart is open to pray
I kneel at my throne of worship
A melody comes my way
Lord, you are so amazing
Your touch, so warm yet light
You ease my every burden
Sanctify my life
Forever strengthening my temple
Coaxing
me to help those in need
Reminding me I am never alone
Observing my every deed
I thank you Lord
For all of your blessings
Valleys, mountains, and streams
Your grace which is overflowing
So grateful you are our King.
