Birthed From Clay

Let us take a ride,
Far away from hate,

Been far too long,
Story of a coffee date with peace,

Planting seeds,
Buried alive,
Wearing no gloves,
Performing open heart surgery,

No water to wash,
No towel to dry,

Method of purification,
Earthly soil,

Concentrate on every sun-rise,
Hanging onto the past,
Leads to persistent failure,

Hands clean,
Born from clay,

If the farmer never remembered planting crops,
If the mother never remembered refusing an abortion,
If the dancer never remembered earning from bleeding,

They wouldn’t be able to wash each other’s hands..
