Something (the spiritual baptism of a black girl) by Sonya McKinzie

Walking, wandering

Barren feet that touch

worlds of treasures

dew melts between my toes

Silence

Thoughts rest in the psyche

Yesterday’s stale memories

Tease thementality

And fingers graze

The back of my head

Scratching the twitch

Resulting from mentally frustrating itch

Something

Is always on themind

Walking, wandering

in the darkness

Peaceful moments in the early morn

 when will the mind find peace

Something

Painful

In the psyche

urges

desires to be cleansed

in the early morn

Naked feet

Naked skin

all is innocently exposed

To closed eyes

That sleep

While the palms of feet wander in open fields

Surrendering

submerging

Beneath the water in the flowing river

Baptized nakedness

And leaving behind the weights of sin

And emerging

Spiritually cleansed

Something

New

Reborn

Again
