I went through Valley's of despair
I clilmbed up Mountains of indecision
I swam through rivers of contention
And down roads of dissension.
I sat in a tree that saw forever.
I drank from a brook that tasted of
my souls surrnder.
I lay on leaves of precious tender
And carried a bag of burdens and
left each one of them at my roadside
of rest.
My heartbreak I left at the hill of regrets.
My lost dreams I left at the river of forgetfulness
My wasted time I hung on the tree of forever
As I grew tired and lay on the leaves of precious
tender, I heard footsteps that I had never noticed
on this journey...
I swallowed gulps of air filled with indignation.
Looked up and saw my past slowly fading into
nothingness...
I clutched my heart and felt a new beat, wiped
a tear and got back on my feet.
And at the end of my journey I found my piece/peace!
Waiting on a platter of gold, surrounded by all of the
promises that tommorrow holds.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
