Black Universal

by Trina Williams-Emigh

I am the universe that engulfs me
I am the stars that light its night sky
And the sun that warms its day

Iím also the strength of a people spoken as a clichť

I am the earth that supports me
I am the roots that grow under its watchful eye
And the trees that shade its play

Iím also the wisdom of a lifetime tossed like a bouquet

I am the water that quenches me
I am the tide that rises high
And the river that runs away

Iím also the spirit of a burden thatís far too heavy to weigh
