In Moment of Despair

by Afrika Abney

In moment of despair

look within and you would find peace and love

in your heart

look above

into the heaven

of the skies

and you will find God

watching over you

watching your every thought and action

look within and you will find

truth, justice, and unity

within your soul

and you will find treasurable memories

not justified on the basis or merits

of who you are as a person

but instead

of how you react to things

so it is that I advise you

to mediate


interalize every thought



before you shape it up into a


of air, water, earth and fire

listen and reflect upon words spoken

ideas passed on

blessings received

most all maintain peace and love

in your heart

for it is peace

that would bring bountiful spirits

from the universe

relax your mind

free your body

from the unjust

dive into the waters of Mother Africa

play tunes of the harp

calming your spirit

take a long deeeeeeep breath
