Something Calls - Poem by Roderick Dwayne Gering

I dread to fall into a fitful sleep
To dream and nightmare in shadows
Then something calls to me out of the deep
To lay in green pastured meadows

The voice whispers with sincerity
Kissing softly my inner thoughts
Truth chimes with crystal clarity
Seeking the path never sought

My soul thirsty for peace
Cottonmouth my spirit cries
Tame the dreaded beast
With crickets and fireflies

Our Mother needs shepherds
Her beauty is our claim
If we harmonize with the leopards
To sing amongst many no shame

Let me hear the heartbeat
Of a world ready to jam
Everyone is off their seat
With the serenity of a lamb

When huminity's heart unites
In a song of heavenly sound
Spirits on many endless flights
Never having to leave the ground
