Ntozake

i have been

woke

for some time now…

and i have walked

many roads…

it seems lately

I write to memorialize

to remember,

to look back;

It is my way.

i step into the future

gingerly

hoping for time and success.

while my past 

is full of richness,

the wealth of historical teachers

and historical times.

i am of the ancestors now,

my works will serve to teach

and show

the meaning i have made

of

this life 

and of

these times.

(for playwright Ntozake Shange–rest with the ancestors)
