I Will Wait...

I Will Wait...

A Poem by Kimberly "Melody" Carney
"

I do not write you, to make you happy, nor to hear you agree. I write to make you think and maybe set your soul free.

"

Celtic_Man

 

I have seen…

the swallow fall from the sky,

        on a windless summer day.

the missionary swear,

the prostitute stole his money away.

 a father, become the father,

of his very own daughters, daughter.

 

I am not …

amazed, shocked or entertained,

by any of these things.

 

I am…

 waiting for more!

 

Waiting to see…

 our children grow up  in a world,

never asking  gender or race.

when man finally understands,

religion is an impossible case!

 

Wanting us to ask…

who put the power in our hands,

to divide freedom by sea and land.

to choose the condition of one’s soul,

when we are all one of the same whole.

I will wait…

 

~Melody

Being one who has an affinity for reading copious amounts of multicultural literature, I can't help but love this poem. I'm a strong advocate for equality in every sense of the word. The trouble however, is how people define equality. Equality does not mean 'special treatment' or as a crutch to throw at someone when one feels slighted due to preconceived notions of what we believe others to perceive. Equality is 'all things being equal' no matter the circumstances or the individual.

What a breath of fresh air to read something pertaining to such an important ideal-if only more writers would embrace it. I have read a number of poems pertaining to this subject that ridicule how badly they are mistreated instead of embracing those who accept them.

I love the first two opening lines. It captured my eye and made me want to read more about what happened to the narrator. It spoke true words, all of it! Good job
