Laeia Jackson ( Afro-American USA)


Coming upon a crossroad

She stopped and stared blankly

At the mirage she’d been chasing

She was weary of it

For once her head turned

Left, right, left. She thought,

Dreamed of what lay beyond

Concealed in notions of paths she knew

If she should turn

With her ear to the ground and her eyes to the sky

She heard hushed murmurs

Of something that knew all her life

Her eyes swam like cloudy waters

Sweet hypnotism in her mind

Uncertainty gripping her breast

She stepped towards the mirage
And turned toward reality
