Deep recesses

Written by: Brenda Victoria Northeast

Out of the deep recesses 
Of human hearts
Comes a longing cry

For recognition
From where and from when 
Did they come?

Out of the bowels of the earth
Gold is found and dug
And the silver vein discovered

Out of the depths of the sea 
Formed in the womb of the oyster
The most precious Pearls are birthed

Out of the darkest sky in light years of space
Brilliant stars are birthed 
Inside mountains of gaseous clouds

Out of midnight oil is the search 
For wisdom and knowledge
The rarest of gems

Is birthed in the Heart that holds God 
A most precious Pearl 
Born from giving all that are
