Give And Take

Poem By Rhonda L. Burke

Paint me a picture of your heart
and I will sing you the song of my soul.
Read me the words of your mind
and I will open the door to my fears.
Hold me close to you forever -
and I will share with you my Love.

Longing You reach out to touch me,
but where have I gone?
The twilight has taken me many places -
a shadow thirsty for light.
And so your hand passes through me.
A ghost am I.
A fond memory of what
made your heart sing,
a dream that ended too soon.

Color

Oh God, what has happened to our world?
Race against race, color has become the difference
between life and death.
And so I run, afraid of falling victim,
