Colorful Journey (By Y. Shabazz)

Existing in a world surrounded by beautiful noise
the voices of youth laugh unfiltered and unashamed
faces brown, light brown, high yellow, and bruised
all shine with petroleum jelly accentuated by African memories
touching, pushing, grabbing
we are all on this journey trying to find something to feel
such beautiful noise
mama’s yawn loud and unfiltered
exhausted from a lifetime of raising seeds from dead level
…to life…
only to see them return to the soil wilted under the power
the power of the unrelenting sun
