Lately I’ve begun to feel the Full Catastrophe of our
Public and Personal Racial Divides
Lately I’ve begun to Realize the Endless Barrenness
Of Blocking Our Selves from Another
For Conjured Reason
No Matter How Faintly it Lurks
Lately I’ve begun to feel the Treason of Policy Banter
I am Responsible for my Mind
I Accept what Goes on In It
No Matter To What Degree
Offensive or Friendly
I Respect Its Power
Invent Worlds
And I Vow
‘Act My Self Into a New Way of Being’
Lately I’ve begun
Want to Witness
True Freedom
In Some True Measure
For Us All
While I’m Still Here
