“The Parable of the Hidden Treasure”

A poem inspired by scripture – See Matthew 13:44 NIV

Composed @bykaileyann on 1964 SUPER STERLING SMITH-CORONA electric typewriter.

My whole life I pined for knowledge

of the land I come from and the story I’m promised

Your time has been kind though I’ve wandered

to the ends of her rivers and back and all over

Behind all my reason encamped these certain ponderings

virtuous as her nightlight in cornrows of standing water

My love of her firs knows

where my treasure is:

My whole heart is rooted in Diana.

    Excuse the blowing wind— In this video, I say some stuff that may be hard for some folks to hear. I said it all the same. For me, this was a chance to finally really speak directly to a very difficult time in my life, but my decision to do it in this way has everything to do with SCOTUS’s recent overturning of Roe vs. Wade. If that isn’t something you’re interested in hearing my take on, that’s okay! But for those of you who have 18 minutes and want to listen, thanks. I hope that this reaches someone who needs to hear it.
