  317.     

I Will Remain Connected

I will remain connected,
To an identity that reflects respect...
And honors the dignity of my ancestors.
With an upholding I will never neglect.
Teased by fashion and designer fads,
Only to last for the next impression to make...
Is not part of my D.N.A.
My ancestry I pride and 'it' I will never fake.

I will remain connected,
To an identity that reflects respect.
Too many I observe to witness and see,
Have been too willing to leave behind to find...
Substitutes to replace and reduce,
The keeping to reveal their true ethnicity.
With adopting to adapt to beliefs just to deny,
Who they are and 'should' be to sacrifice with lies.

Not me.
I have no dreams to be perceived as anyone else.
I stand on two feet to walk with purpose.
And I do this not to seek defeat anticipated to meet.
I am connected to an identity that reflects respect!

  318.     

We Can Sing The Same Songs

we can sing each other the same songs
on the radio.
meaning overwhelms reality
sometimes.
magic circumvents
identity.
i could believe that i was made for him...

i could believe he summonsed me,
called me forth, a spirit;
forth from some abyss
to do his bidding,
forth from my stone crysalis
to become
what he might need.

i could believe that i'm some kind
of human robot he has had designed,
with cutting edge technology,
complete with
programmed memories of the past
and poloroids in hand.

i could believe that he sought me,
that he chose me,
that somehow he owns me;
like the earth owns the moon,
like the sky owns the stars.

he holds me, like a gift that is
still in it's wrappings
as tho yet undecided...to open or not
i could believe
most anything,
it seems. i've seen it all.

i've seen identity and will
become abandon in a glance.
my mind relents
allowing space and time
for broader circumstance
as bliss takes on the garment
of belonging.

we can sing each other the same songs on the radio,
meaning overwhelms reality,
sometimes.
magic circumvents
identity
i could believe that he belongs to me.

As One does Sickness over

957

As One does Sickness over
In convalescent Mind,
His scrutiny of Chances
By blessed Health obscured—

As One rewalks a Precipice
And whittles at the Twig
That held Him from Perdition
Sown sidewise in the Crag

A Custom of the Soul
Far after suffering
Identity to question
For evidence't has been—
 
Emily Dickinson

Nature and God—I neither knew

835

Nature and God—I neither knew
Yet Both so well knew me
They startled, like Executors
Of My identity.

Yet Neither told—that I could learn—
My Secret as secure
As Herschel's private interest
Or Mercury's affair—
 
Emily Dickinson
