Conflict - Poem by Angela Davis

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

    Oh dear, this is a powerful poem. I am tearful, anxious, and yet oddly calm after reading this. It makes one think. (Report) Reply
