Roots & Weeds

I ...want to get down
to the Nappy Roots of my soul
where my spirit is free
and my soul is homegrown
Like fresh tomatoes off the vine
no hurry .... no rush....
just takin my own good time
to be ....exactly who and what
I was made to be
whatever that is...
A writer
A singer
OR a divorced sistah with 4 kids....
just wanna get down to the Nappy Roots of my soul
and let my roots hang ALL the way out
exposing my shadow beliefs and doubts
So I can make room for the planting of good seeds
Way down deep in the rich soil of me.
Pulling up the bone deep weeds
that have tried to intertwine like strange vines
and strangle the harvest right out of me...
Sneaky ass weeds of deciet....some try and look like
flowers ...but they are only there to devour me
So I call upon creators energy to give me the
strength to I creep
out into the deep of me late ...late night
and come face to face with my inner wraith
That would corrupt my "inner seeds"
As a hedge is now placed around my garden...
As I experience the greatest peace I've ever known
Yes... I wanna get down deep the the nappy roots of my soul
where my spirit is free.
and my soul... is homegrown.
