bI Asked God

Being a graduate student,
Daylong didactic interludes
Diversity and racism
I had to know the answer

So I asked 'God what color are you? '
He responded ' I am that I am'
'Yes God but what color are you? '
Again, ' I am that I am? '

Using my psychology on God I asked.
'But what color shall I assign you? '
God responded.'What color is the wind? '
Then he said, 'What color is the rain? '

Replying, 'You've gotten me with the paradox? '
Then he said, ' What color would you have me? '
Replying, ' God, I don't care, I just need to know.'
God replied, 'Well then son, I am the color of your spirit.'

bIf I Only Could

If I could only engineer envy
I would
If I could only design doubt
I would
If I could only harnish hostility
I would
If I could only accumulate abuse
I would
If I could only design distress
I would
If I could only fabricate fear
I would
If I could only forge steel
I would
If I could only knit a giant bag
I would
If I could only sire secrecy
I would
If I could only invent infidelity
I would
And dropp them
All in the bag
Along with the men
From whence they came
And the forged steel
Into the nearest
And the deepest
Ocean abyss
If I could only do this
I would

bImaginary or Real?

An imaginary place
Or state.....in which
Conditions of life
Are extremely bad
Deprivation
Oppression
Terror are
Sad
The science fiction
Webster
Definition
Of dystopia
With Words
That spill
Might one assume
It is imaginary
Or real?

bImprisoned

Lord, at times so imprisoned
And for my time served maybe
I'm ready to be set free
Yearning to be home with my Father
Where I've always known
There's a big room waiting on me
For my time served in this prison
Have been content now I know
My purpose in this existence
Was to get out daily and sow
While it has been such an honor
Most of the times it was alone
Praying you'll give me reprieve
Time for me to now go home
However until that sweet time
Hold me in your hands as I pray
Promising I'll continue my sowing
Dreaming of that winsome day
