Strange Fruit


Lady Holiday- one of my digital prints


 

Embedded in the roots

These trees bare strange fruit

Flowing through generational veins

The poison of the past still remains

Stretching through each limb

Passing through the leaves

And floating in the breeze

Carrying along with it toxic ways

Spreading a curse that’s survives off the fear of many

Creating enemies out of loved ones

Condemning us all to a lifetime of hateful holidays and loving funerals

Until we look in the mirror and see that

Only the truth remains

Leading to a startling revelation and steps to reconciliation

Oh what a feeling it is to submerge yourself in waters of forgiveness and understanding

A necessary purge that gives birth to new leaves no longer stained

Breaking a cycle and bringing forth what was needed in the very beginning,

Change.
