As the World Devolves

As the World Devolves


As the world devolves
broken
                     separate
fueled by hate
I will wait
try to recreate
the Eden real.

As missiles are launched
to rock and stripe
each person of their humanity
I will preserve our sanity.

Do you see this?
This is the key
our adinka of peace
As I ride my Sankofa
to retrieve
a promise left to die.

I must outrun the
this rabid wolf
White squall yapping at its heel

tearing everything it sees.

I avoid the holes
that could suck me in
and avoid the hell 
that could eat me whole.

But carefully I must
collect those stones
that gives life and not death.
