The Best of Me (Work in Progress)

She is savior to outstretched hands
She is gifts
She is giving
She is the boundless beauty of Christmas morning
She is without self
She is skewered heart
Served up savory for your nourishment
She is 3 block walk back from ATM to ensure homeless man has supper
She is light in the absence of light

She is Blackhole Sun
She is goose down
She is comfort
She is comforter

I am charity case

I am thief
I am goose down comforter
stuffed in suitcase

I am work the system
System made to be taken advantage of
Work the system
I am colonization
Work the system

I am colonies
I am occupy
I am conquer
I am divide
I am the parting of thighs like seas
I am inevitability
I am inevitable
I am one small step for man
A flag on her moon
footprint in her sands
I am the shadow in the depths of her craters

She is light

She is giver
She is life
She is mother
Giver of life
She is change
She is magic

I am smoke
She is mirror
I am denial
She is mirror
I am spit in the face of truth
She is mirror

I am anger
I am anger
I am acceptance

I am work in progress

She giver of life
Mother of happiness
I changing
I metamorphosis

I pitter-patter
I heart beat
I father
I heart beat
Djembe thumping
I heart beat
I resurrection
I heart beat
I three block walk back from ATM  to ensure homeless man has supper

I human
I better
I human
I better

She, savior to outstretched hands

I am man
I am human
I must do better
