My Soul sings and soars to Hope!
Beyond the Hills, the Clouds, The Rainbow.
It Soars straight to the arms of God.
The Creator of ALL Things.
My Soul Sings with the welcomed breath that I have been waiting to exhale.
My Soul Sings for ALL the Peoples on this Earth,
My Real brothers and sisters, and siblings and "Theys"
My Soul Sings Like the Spirituals my Grandma Alice sang as she washed the floors of Rich White People, who never knew her life.
Her song punctuated by sighs of "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus"
always was a song of a Day Like This One... a day of Liberation, Acceptance and Hope.
My Souls Sings As I "re-Joy-ce" the Reclamation of Justice, Hope, Safety, Unity, Acceptance, Reverence, Respect, Courage, Inspiration, Resilience, Healing, Thankfulness, Relief, Over-coming, Knowing, Wisdom, Forgiveness ......and Shared Power.
My Soul Sings! OOOh Weeee! My Soul Sings!
