Smiles Of Hope

By ThankGod williams PoetLord 5 weeks ago

Your smiles weaken my soul 

It touches my bone to marrow

It leads me to where I can follow 

Your smiles can bring back a life

 

The smiles of your face set fire to the Halls of Injustice and the false evidence burns of a beautiful white lightness

It rattles the Chambers of Congress and forces the windows wide open so the fatuous speeches can fly out

The smiles wipe the mist from the spectacles of the old;

it infects them with the happy flu and they laugh as if they were young again

 

Prisoners held in underground cells imagine that they see daylight when they remember the laughter of women

It runs across water that divides, and reconciles two unfriendly shores like flares that signal the news to each other

 

What a language it is, the laughter of women, high-flying and subversive. Long before law and scripture,  we heard the laughter, we understood freedom
