Jude's Touch

Though first with trepidation, you stumbled forward,

your raven hair swept through the crowd.

A first step

becomes a dash towards open arms of an aunt

that has not been able to hold you

for too long.

It takes flaming courage of a child, to turn her back from

divisions bestowed on her by tradition-

her gate towards a silhouette quickly fading

a purpose of intentions filled with hope

with the brilliance of amethyst crystals, paving the way

for healing.

How is it sweet child, you know more than the


Perhaps you are not yet tainted or contained;

for this your silk touch means the world to me as

you have blossomed into a young woman and I can

hear the vapor inaudible whisper:

even as you mouth to me...

"Regardless of what they say, I know

your true essence- I shall never oblige to obey

tyranny: the disgrace of the lack of forgiveness"

Thank you child, you are the gem that keeps

my breath from being throttled under the weight

of ostracization.

I think we adults can learn from the innocence of a child. One does not need to be older in order to be wise.

Voted up and beautiful

Take care :)

As children we feel and see God clearly. All of our senses are given to us at birth for clarity and ESP. It's only as we lose that sweet innocence and enter the life of teens and adults that they deminish. We are now exposed to the sins of our forefathers and we see them clearly and many of us become them all over again.

Oh to remain a child forever would be sublime. I pray when we cross over to the other side the child is bestowed within ours souls once more. Surely we have learned our lessons on earth? A beautiful scribe my poet, bravo. I hear the child coming from your heart as you penned this piece.
