Soulful Strut

chains and whips begone
rituals with rope and poplar trees as well
these blows are no longer my legacy
a child on shoulders of the past
marching in the streets 
knowing how I counter 
could be my lot, could be my hell

My dear friend, your poem brings me to the center of emotions that require courage to bear. There is enormous courage in your "soulful strut", Richard. As "a child on shoulders of the past", can you see an end to racial injustice and division on the horizon? I admire the bravery of those shoulders you stand on and the bravery of those marching today. I pray everyday for the rising sun to enlighten dim shadows standing in the way of freedom's new day. It will take much more than prayers, I'm afraid. I embrace your graceful pen and your lionheart, dear poet, dear friend. Warmest wishes always.. ~Susan
