Angela Davis

Rookie (1976 / USA)

Conflict


I reside in her heart
yet I live alone
in the shadowed past
in the uncertain future

I am torn
My heart is peaceful
my spirit fearful and confused
conflict within

I am all at once
freed by love
but I am imprisoned
none the less

I wander aimlessly
slowly approaching
mankind's final destination

once there
will my restless soul
finally find its peace

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
