God Willing

AS SPIRITUAL AS I GET

God willing, Nannie would say
I won’t be here next year
God willing, He’ll take me
I’ll rest
You young people can carry on

Make your messes
Find your faults
Scream
Cry
Shout

Or better yet
Don’t talk at all
Kill each other with silence

I’ve had enough, Nannie would say
God willing, take me now
I’ve seen the so called Promised Land
It’s not for me
You young people can have it

Scramble over each other
Dash for freedom
Run
Flee
Trample

Even better
Block all passages
Let no one through

Slavery
Escape
Wandering
Promise

Fight for a new land
Fight to stay alive
Fight to find happiness
Fight
Fight
Fight

God willing, Nannie would say
By tomorrow I’ll be gone
