I follow rivers
To meet their ends
Plant seeds of magnolias
Within their cracks, so
I can see the night bloom
And trade a life with God
There is mud on my innocence?
A mouth itching with words, I am
Forgetting to manifest your light?
I am the roots,
I was there when time begun
Sold my diamonds for “love”
Gave a face to time and taught her kindness
Bowed shoulders, a generation of shields
With broken bones and clubbed smiles
Almond skins have seen it all, I was
Here, I am here, I am the roots of time
I am too young to know a heartbreak
Yet too old to bottle up silence,
Call me a barrel of emotions?
Folded like some marijuana joint
But who will make love to this emptiness?
When the sun rises again,
Where will you be?
Would you come for a hug?
And let your lips breaks,
The way my heart did,
Is it my turn to find you?
Within the rivers of tears we shed.
