- What Matters
I want to Soar.
Soar to the lilac skies tie-dyed by a setting sun
Until the tips of my wings are barely singed.
To see the whole world for what it is,
Outside my inconsequential woes looking in.
Focus not on melodramatic imperfections,
But the burdens of poverty, famine and hate.
Free to spend a day
Summoning hope from deep within to wipe away discouragement
And so, I Soar.
From mama’s cheese grits served with a dash of scorn.
Soar so far my chains fall away.
Over the cricket-filled meadows on a summer night
To the house where children starve.
Where fathers don’t care and mothers,
Work continuously, and yet offer only cold cereal,
Filled with love.
Go where I am needed,
Where my energy makes a difference,
To where ready-made love is just waiting to be spread,
Butter on bread.
