Forgiveness

Hey loves!

I made this video for my literature project about racial identity, adversity, immigration to America, black power and more. My project was based off the book The Color of Water by James McBride.

My Spoken Word Poem: Forgiveness

”How long will you go here and there, O faithless daughter?” Believe in me and all problems shall be baptized away and make reconciliation possible. There is a plague that has been cured. No more nightmares to be feared. No more chains to beard freedom’s longing tears. You found healing from this hurting; a lifelong journey to discover you were your own antidote. With every tear that poured from the gashes that had been dug decades before redemption and with your two hands by the grace of God came the solution.  The solution you passed down to your off-spring and down to their offspring. No more pep talks about how to survive being black in America. The Jim Crow that clothed the bald eagle will no longer haunt the land of the free and brave. White America finally understands that a nation divided could not stand together. The white hooded boa’s that constrictor a noose around God’s oppressed people no long reigned torment. The declaration will state “all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are LIFE, LIBERTY and the pursuit of happiness” will pour down gold drops from the heavens and release us from centuries of anguish. We will no longer be considered property. Finally, this statement will ring gospel.  Liberation has become the remedy so we’re gonna heal. ”And if we’re gonna heal that it be glorious!”
