Loose Boards by Colie Aziza
It seems we keep trying to build on loose boards of cracked wood.
It seems we keep trying to pretend that the house is a sturdy one.
This is a micro of the macro, and I fight for truth and freedom-
so even if I want to cry for the fallen after awhile
I may become like the other zombies- undone,
but I can't!
my God won't let me.
I gotta sketch some joy on this wall-
a joy that grows so full that it smothers the pain-
and colors my life and my world completely.
Joy is what I need.
I will dance in the face of all of this.
I invite you to do the same
