The Gold Mine in My Mind

I went to the ANSWER Coalition’s “Liberation Mic” last Thursday and met this amazing poet, Quindell Quev Evans of Blue Poet Tree. Below is one of his poems…

“I need a piece of change”
So I could spend some time
On mine & the gold mine in my mind
With this change
I’ll buy happy seeds &
Plant them in pain’s soil
When it rains
The richest roots
Of joy will foil
What pain hath owned
From this piece of change
Happyness have grown.

Important FYI: The ANSWER Coalition is an anti-racist and anti-war organization. ANSWER stands for Act Now to Stop War and End Racism. You can find out more about ANSWER and their open mic series “Liberation Mic” on their website www.answercoalition.org

 

Peace,
