The breeze

Carried

My ancestor’s prayers

Eternal words of

Blessing

Breathed in

My first infant cry

Twined

With my DNA

We are forever one

Studying myself

From a view

Of self-peace

Very little

Of myself

Have I shared

With you

In fact

I’ve even kept

Myself from myself

Some days I’ve

Felt so betrayed

So overlooked

But,

My thought’s

Have been terribly misinformed

Thinking I should be seen

When I’ve barely shone

What light

Did I give

You to follow?

You can’t behold

A woman

Who’s dimmed

Her spirit

To obscure dusk

Naturally,

She’s nowhere

To be found

There’s layers to my depths

And depths to my layers

Arrangements of silence, sounds, letters, words

Building, stacking, mounting

One pause, one syllable, one moment at a time

Spinning out from

My soul’s innermost core

Bursting into life

The moment they touch air

Traveling through galaxies

Beyond the universe

Beyond time

You will tell everyone

How you prayed

And how I answered

Love,

God

Look!

You see?

When you serve me

I will put you in places

You could not otherwise go

I will place you

In palaces you can’t afford

I thought

About contemplating

Then decided

Thinking too much

Is overrated…

Seize the day!
