Confess they say it lays burdenless the soul
But to whom should I confess
When all my associates are themselves
seeking the confessional for pardons of
sins to which my confessions would lay in shame
when compared
And to you who dared
Go ahead cast the first stone of your disgust
but first let us discuss your wanting
your lacking your need for greed your need
to feed
upon the innocence of the blind, the overly kind
the empathetic, the forgiving
sitting on the other side of your confessing

There is a storm brewing
It is blowing inwards to our collective souls
It is relentless at times just bitter cold
There is a storm brewing
It wants to wash away our tired
It wants to cleanse us of generational turmoil
It wants to take out to sea all that
we’ve long allowed to fester
The hate, the shame, the blame the endless
love is a game
The blockage that has us constipated
in our desperation, in our fears
we foolishly fight to be segregated
But unable to get away from the true pain
our face in the mirror of our shame

Confess they say it lays burdenless the soul
But to whom should I confess
When with each passing day we are collectively
growing old
and none has the courage the truth to be told
A child is born, Black, Black. Black
to parents, White, White, White
And the sins of the parents has fallen upon
the child
and still we lack the momentary decency
to confess that
Truth be told, that child was always
going to be Black, Black, Black
because its White, White, White
parents were of Black, Black, Black
Confess they say it lays burdenless the soul
But to whom should I confess
So leave my story untold
and I will say it all when the heavens open
to greet me or in hell that it is said
will be my gift instead.

Confess they say it lays burdenless the soul
But to whom should I confess
