Come Celebrate with Me!
Won’t you celebrate with me
What i shaped into
A kind of life? I had no model.
Born in Babylon
Both non-white and woman
What did I see to be except myself?
I made it up
Here on this bridge between
Starshine and clay.
My one hand holding tight
My other hand; come celebrate
With me that everyday
Something has tried to kill me
And has failed.
