"We Ain't Forgotten...

Views: 71

 

You cried a smile

shadowing anger

beneath a canopy

of love

 

Your necks filled nooses

tied with Christian knots

that never failed

 

Your wombs challenged

the holding holes

of sanctified graveyards

 

You kneaded gospels

from the dough of pain

and fed starving souls:

 

You moaned songs

with groans echoing

echoes from the depths

of suffering spirits—

 

Suffering spirits

whose fortified bent backs

gave rise to a flourishing nation

 

The fruits of your labors

have now ripened:

dropping pregnant seeds

germinating liberty
