The African Spirit

you arouse true love
and compassion within my veins...
the African spirit

your gentle hand
guides me through the corridors
of thought; revealing
the embers of a fecund mind
and a thousand flowers in bloom

you turn
sadness into joyful rhythms
on the fatal shore

with hard times looming
you transform the fragile ‘hood
for good…
the immense beauty
of life preserved

behold the golden dawn…
the new state of consciousness
blessed with potential

you tame
the voice of unreason
with pure love…
nourishing the soul with
the sacred nectar of desire
