Black History Month Poetry:  "Freedom without Revelation"

Freedom without Revelation

from 28 Days of Poetry Celebrating Black History 2
by Latorial Faison (2006)

From the slave ship
To the guilt trip
We forget our heritage
Forsaking kinship

As blood runs
And the earth turns
There are many lessons
To be learned

What makes us?
What breaks us?
Who's the keeper of souls?
Who will forsake us?

History is potent with many lies
And America has yet to answer the cries
Of those sinking in sands of poverty
Who have long been denied

In the land of lost generations
There is no peace or salvation
America finally found its freedom
But somehow lost its revelation
