Be encouraged! I wrote this late last night dreaming of Africa.
Keep on friends. Let's fight for injustice today. If you cannot get up, fight with words.
Short of breathe
We move aside the cutting wind.
We run for hope in spite of it.
We are the color of freedom.
Lost in love
When hope deferred
Makes life seem dim, we sing.
We are the notes in song.
Angry at future's voice
Racing for only one touch.
We pursue today for glorious bliss
Longing for justice in the dust.
Where is love when doubt is here?
Like air our faith is blind.
When babies cry, and mothers leave,
Over rubble and clay they scream for us.
The mess we make, and the wars we play...
Today, we must fight for truth and love,
In speaking, seeking more.
For higher things than worldly dreams,
We enter heavens door.
Despite the doubt, we run for more.
We fight through broken muscles and tattered scars...
We sore. We sing. We paint. We dance. We run. We love.
Keep on mother, father, sister, brother, friend, lover, child.
