Devotion


Some soul meetings are meant to change you in an instant

Stir you up and spin you around

Sacred songs pour blessings upon blessings

Embracing every inch of flesh passed down through generations

I am my mother’s daughter

Arms move and sway with the dip and drive of the drum

Ancestral recall of lost traditions

I am my father’s daughter

My humble prayer ignited by a single flame

Take back what is yours

Take back peace of mind

Take back the honor in devotion

I am

I am

I am


Asé
