    SHE ASKED

    She asked without seeing
    Are you black? Are you white?
    My answer
    Neither
    I’m a spirit of light
    I was born from the dust
    Conceived in a native land
    Before my mothers womb
    Was sealed by a governing hand
    Mocking treaty
    Cowardly a pride
    Refusing demand
    A true nation died

    She asked without seeing
    Are you weak? Are you strong?
    My answer
    Neither
    I’m a spirit of song
    Born of this earth
    Composed from the land
    My father’s last words
    Make a true maelstrom stand
    Mocking trust
    Tricking with lies
    Refusing the truth
    A real nation dies

    She asked without knowing
    Can you come back again?
    My answer
    Unsure
    I’m a spirit in spin
    I was born without form
    Unlike a man
    Born without sin
    I came to give love
    You made me a slave
    Conceived in my true native land
    The real mother made
    Paid by a father
    While his women got laid

    I meant raped

    Not many escaped
    The eventual
    Inevitable
    Overtake
    European man
    So called pilgrim clan
    Oh profess we to be clean
    Crystal clear
    Like a deep slow mountain stream
    But vague
    Like yesterdays daydream

    Finally she asked
    Are you afraid?
    Of the world you created
    And the world that we made
    My answer
    Neither
    I’m a spirit of love
    I gave you a promise
    Of what I’m made of
    But I tell you the truth
    I tell with no pride
    I know in the heart
    Without question
    The world will follow
    Of how a strong nation died

    She asked no more

    I do appreciate a good metaphor


    She ask me where I’m from

    I’m from heaven, passing thru

    In a land of fallen angels

    had my wings clipped

    just like you

          I'm a spirit of light,
          I'm a spirit of song,
          I'm a spirit in spin,
          I'm a spirit of love.

          Aren't we all?

          A truly amazing poem. I am perplexed how it is written, and there is much for me to learn from this beautiful verse.

          Thank you for sharing!
