Hues of Promise
Born on a Tuesday
Skin the color of Turmeric and Cinnamon
Fierce hues of promise
Savory like foods
from Mama's pepper pot
As she grows, she is told to brace for the storms her life will hold....
In the meantime, ......
Indulging on the sweetness of Innocence
Juju beans and ice cream cones
Shaved ice from the corner store.
Fast Forward yet Time Travelled
only to bring back the pain rooted in a time
so far but not far away at all.
She with a hue so beautiful finds herself immobilized
Shackled by the spirits that seek dominion over her story.
Demonic host staking claims to eradicate her future glory.
Purposed legions of invisible defense
Angels, Ancestors come to her rescue and carry her on their wings to safety.
Ministering and Equipping her with
the succors of strength
the elixirs of hope
the food of fortitude
the refreshing waters of resilience
the ground for grit
the anointing of abundance
the light of liberation
and a compass that leads to a destination set by the Divine
Yes, greatness lies within her
like still seeds in fertile low country soil
ready for the first rain to explode. Inspired by a trip to the AAHM-the African American History Museum. It is truly a museum that everyone should make a priority to visit.
