It took a moment..


It took a moment
As my eyes adjusted to the new day
The baby giggling me a lullaby
& making sure I was safe
It was cold & the world was different..
Quieter somehow.. slower than I remember
Yet there’s more noise & fear..
My friends aren’t here
Nor is anyone coming to free me
But when I look at my hands..
I recognize myself
And when the children sing..
I remember the songs of my people
& why I’m here
And why together..
It’s a beautiful day
Sugar and spice
