Change Takes Time

By 28th August 2006December 9th, 2019No Comments

A 360 degree transformation
Since day of creation
Voice named faith and determination
Won’t hear this on your local radio station
Took all this grief, anguish, immense pain
Stopped pointing the finger
Who cares who’s to blame
It’s in the past- can’t change history
Regardless how disturbing
Change the present, the future
Forgiveness attained
Why do these recent wounds
Still cry and bleed crimson red teardrops?
How long will it take
For these suffering wounds
To scab up
And create new skin?
All I know is that
One day, it will happen.
