"I AM"

Views: 300

I AM the voice of erstwhile nations

Mali

Ghana

                                                                   and                                                                                                              

Songhai

 I AM the river of all their sorrows

because their well has now gone dry

 

I AM

Africa

I AM Wisdom

The one who gave the world its seed

I AM the slave who broke his chains...

...behind their backs I learned to read

I AM the sound of children weeping

without guidance

Hope

or

Love

 

I AM their Keeper, I AM compassion

I AM their strength sent from above

 

I AM the echo of Black men’s protests

I AM Dark Hued, Caramel, and Tan

 

I AM a scholar and not inferior...

...I AM more than "three fifths" a man!

 

I AM the Sun, the Moon the Galaxy

I AM the Dawn that brings the Light

 

I AM the eagle in all its glory

I AM the thought that takes to flight

 

I AM Maya, Brooks, and Sanchez

I AM the spark that lights the fuse

 

I AM the Dream that's reached fruition

I AM Woodson, Shabazz, and Hughes

 

I AM words that are not yet spoken

I AM all of the writers who go unheard

 

I AM their Spirit, I AM fulfillment...

 

 

..I AM..

 

 

A mixture of conscious stirred

Very, very nice! Loved the flow and imagery. It's been said that great minds think alike. I invite you to check out my poem entitled "I Am". I believe there's some style similarities there. Thank you for sharing this Poetiq1der. Blessings.
