What She Knows

(a poem about Amyriel) ❤ .

.. she loves Oya and Joan of Arc,

Bastet and Aphrodite,

knows the stories of Isis and Persophone

… loves Ruth, Esther, Khadija, and Fatima

… she loves Jesus and Mohammed and Siddhartha…

she knows their similarities, their struggles,

and the lessons they brought to the world

… she knows her history, knows OUR history,

… She is just one of many

who will understand that EVERY

great culture has left a legacy

for us,

of its triumphs

and its disasters

… AND WE ARE ALL THEIR CHILDREN… (to be continued)
