Colored Girl

 

Little girl with the rainbow colored hair
Double Dutch wizard side to side
Without care
Beauty, freedom emanate from your pores
Are you the Colored girl
I’ve been longing for?

What do you see, feel for your life?
Sing to me now
That I’ve dealt with the strife
Go deep inside
Pack your bags,
All the wonder, dreams
You’ve tied in rags
Live with me now and oh, what fun
No more girl
Living life on the run.

Colored girl
What do you say?
Come procreate with me
A brand new day
This is good
Where we at right now, internal gaze looking out
Let’s bow
To each other only
We answer to no one
Covenant sweetened
Ripened by love sun.

Resist no more
Stared black ambition down
Nothing remainsnot even a sound
Your voice comes through
My breath that you hear
Gestation formats a phenomenal year.

Can’t wait to behold
The outcome of this
A long awaited form of ultimate bliss.
To know that inside
Is finally in sync
To the newborn Nirvana of my inner link.
Little girl with the rainbow colored hair
Double Dutch wizard side to side
Without care
Beauty, freedom emanate from your pores
You
is the Colored girl
I’ve been longing for.

    Wow! Profound, deep inner truth from the soundless depths that have surfaced spoken in poetic words about our release from societal and family bondage to our God given freedom of what He made our souls to become – each a unique gift to the universe. Bravo! Thank you Leeanne for putting words to something stirring within which I could not.

    I’m so lucky that this is my
    Mom. I have envied her talent since I was little and always wished I could be just like her.
