The Longest Hour


dark days in the ‘hood
yet, your light
shines upon my
soul like a diamond in the sky

compassion drops like the elixir of desire
like the divine nectar of being
like the droplets of love molecules
dressed in silence and emotion

you bless my soul in the longest
hour of the night; opening my eyes to the wondrous
seeds of survival; anointing my body with
the sweet fragrance of reason
