Beyond the Decade
Have you heard? The Decade is closing. But we are not closing, We have taken off, The New-Era African, The New-Era African Diaspora. We have arrived, arrived at the waters, From the Continent to the Caribbeans, From the Americas to Eurasia, Ankle deep, waist deep, over-head deep, We are immersed in healing, Ripened reconciliation reaped. Connecting at heart, Connecting in mind, No more skin-deep. We have arrived, arrived at the mountaintop. Craggy contours scraped, slushed, and sliced, Buried in blurry chaos, knees knocking, Gasping through history, fogged up, Yet here we are, on the peak, Vision fully restored, Connecting at heart, Connecting in mind, No more skin-deep.
