A bloody blessing

Let the pain sink in deep. The strong, the deep learning.

Bitter pain heal me for ever!

Pain, pain torments me
I’m a wood, you are a fire
Burn me to ground. Burn me to the ash.
Leave nothing of me. Leave nothing of whom I was before.

No love I deserve.

Don’t listen to my cry
Pity none of my supplication
Make no sense of my words.

Burn down my illusions
Burn down my masks
Burn down my flesh
Burn down my soul

Take away everything I possess
Leave nothing. Nothing. Nothing.

From the cold ash, a new tree shall come
Not me there. Stronger. Taller. Powerful.

Bless me with the pain I need to grow.
Nothing less I need. Nothing more I need.
Just bless me immediately.

Don’t listen to my cry
Pity none of my supplication
Make no sense of my words.

Burn down my illusions
Burn down my masks
Burn down my flesh
Burn down my soul

Take away everything I possess
Leave nothing. Nothing. Nothing.

From the cold ash, a new tree shall come
Not me there. Stronger. Taller. Powerful.

    Thanks for the poem. It shows deep feelings of our pain. Only an Afurakan can express our hurt and pain that we continue to go through every day of our lives.
