I’m in a state of confusing still unsure of its conclusion
In this land where opposites attract how should I react
A larger imposing man yes! then there’s my black skin
I’m a stranger the West show it, here they don’t know it

 

Kindness Of The Heart

I met a darling woman at the lake mother grandmother

her heart was open wide her smile was as big as all outside
I was totally disarmed confuses in the West goes off alarms
she told me about her Hanoi then give me wisdom and more
      
East and West

This woman of strength socked me in the arm then said
” The days when darkness fall when others can’t hear your
cries or calls, reach deep inside yourself to restore the light
when theirs nothing else”

Something my mother would have said

I look at this woman who I had just met two hours before
I can’t explain it so I won’t say more she stolen heart right
from the start.
