untitled (just)

i took myself from the world
or perhaps i take
to dip my toes in again -just a taste

this walk alone
a desert trip
leaves me thirsty -just a sip

if you choose
to be with me
pardon my silence -just a blink

i welcome you
the journey is long
the trek treacherous -just a song

and in the end
we both have grown
a day is but -just move on.

I kept my faith
momma, no thanks to you.
You told me “what heaven?”
“why heaven!
you don’t understand
?”

Momma, gone talk to our pastor friend.
Going to keep my faith
momma, you stumbling hazard.
He gone done another sin
and you blind as the world.

“These drops of rain?”
“Why momma, they God crying
over His people.”
My faith
gives me a chance. I’ll take
my fortune and get out of here.

Momma?
