The Mother

Abortions will not let you forget.
you remember the children you got that you did not get,
the damp small pulps with a little or with no hair,
the singers and workers that never handled the air.
You will never neglect or beat
Them, or silence or buy with a sweet.
You will never wind up the sucking-thumb
Or scuttle off ghosts that come.
you will never leave them, controlling your luscious sigh,
return for a snack of them, with gobbling mother eye.

I have heard in the voices of the wind the voices of my dim
killed children.
I have contracted. I have eased
My dim dears at the breasts they could never suck.
I have said, Sweets, if i sinned, if i seized
Your luck
And your lives from your unfinished reach,
If i stole your births and your names,
Your straight baby tears and your games,
Your stilted or lovely loves, your tumults, your marriages,
aches, and your deaths,
If i poisened the beginnings of your breaths,
Believe that even in my deliberateness i was not deliberate.
Though why should i whine,
Whine that the crime was other than mine?
Since anyhow you are dead.
Or rather, or instead,
You were never made.
But that too i am afraid,
is faulty: oh,what shall i say, how is the truth to be said?
You were born, you had body, you died.
It is just that you never giggled or planned or cried.

Believe me, i loved you all.
Believe me, i knew you, though faintly, and i loved,
I loved you all.

"As JAH Liveth He has heard My Prayer!
Bless Be He!

Oh King of Zion,hear I plea,
For I call unto Thee for Thy tender Mercy,
Make I path straight,
Guide I onward in faith,
Protect I from them who lay wait,
Though asps slander I&I to date,
Thou alone may Iratest,
Many fallen along the way,
Without Thee by their side,
But as silver are we tried,
So shall we stand to testify,
A love so pure I&I won't deny,
Graicous God oh Most High,
Honor&Glory be in our supplication,
For I to do I part in Thy Holy Iration,
Unto Thee shall be gathered Thy nation,
Whom shall seek Thee in Thy generation,
Bless Jacob's seed unto Davids offsspring,
Hear our psalmist when the I sing,
Incline Thine ear when the musicians begin,
Purge Thy little ones of their sins,
Strenghten I,to see I endure,
I'ver Faithful,I'ver Grateful,I'ver Sure,
Thy love for Thy youths can never wither,
As unto Melchezedec did Abraham pay his tither,
So unto the King must a man show himself humble,
Therefore he may find the Kingdom of righteousness in life,
While the heathens mumble and stumble to die,
Let us be as the light that shineth without strife,
Fulfilling the Will of the Almighty I,
Breath of blessing to know why:
We're here in this moment of time and space,
Living proof of His Majestical Kindness&Grace.

Selah Negus
Amen Negast
One Love of Blessing "
