My Reflection

My WisdomI am your UnderstandingTrapped deep in your memory.Beautiful black skin,brown skin,and shades of tan.Beautiful black woman;my reflection-I place my heart in your hands.Give me yours and I will take itgrasping it gently.With you in my arms and I in yours,we stand on God’s shoulders-and find destiny.

Together we can awaken a dreamthat transcends fantasy,and breathes truth like fireto burn this world’s nightmarish reality’til it lays in ashes underneath our feet.

Our souls will grow together ’til they meltinto one,while unbelieving eyeswill try in vain to block out our light,which shines like the Alkebu-Lan Sun;over the Caribbean,New York City,Down South,and over Cali.It will shine over China,Europe,The Middle East,and right back to Africa,once called Alkebu-Lanwhere our life and love began.It is here that we will stand,if only in spirit.Here I will kiss youand embrace your lips.It is here that I will love youas its sun reflects on our skin
