promised land…

promised land

do not point
to
the living
and
talk about
the dead
as if
your promises
of
today
will
somehow
roll away
the stones
of oppression
and
cruelty
promised land
of
dreams
that
will
raise our ancestors
from
their graves
healing
their tortured dried flesh
erasing whip marks
with
your sweet dreams
of
someday
you’ll
be…
but
like today
we’ll
be
nothing more
than the dirt
under
your feet
our lives today
are used
as rose petals
to soften
your
journey
