N-Zo & DJ Invincible “Trippin’ On Sunshine”

 

 

 

 

Remember always
The smile of a flower
The taste of a kiss from the sun
The endless walkways you have faced
And the grace with which every foot race has been run

 

Spun from the lace
Of another time and place
And in contrary way
You’ve barely just begun
Remember always
The tears of every duct once wrung
The years you nearly came undone
The days when clearly you played dumb
The weeks that soon changed into months
Defeats paraded all at once
Then take great comfort from all you have overcome

 

Remember always
The games you played in school hallways
The way it felt when out of place
The cards they dealt
The poker face
Knowing full well you were different from the rest of the curriculum
The silence that replaced your rightful place to be articulate
Remember always
That there was one thing in particular
That made you most dissimilar to those whose hopes lay wasted

 

Every sun kiss tasted
Is a day redecorated
To midsummer night a dream
And every reason left to chase it
Naked to the flowers which empower bones to enthrone them
Hero of the hour with towering heart apart wide open
Remember always
That every shower tides the ocean
Once we glance behind to power forward motion

 

Remember always
The miles you traversed
The curses you lifted
The furthered ellipsis
The taste of a kiss from the sun
The endless walkways you have run
And the grace with which you ably overcome
Remember
All the ways
To taste the sun

  1. All I can say is… “I will”
    Love this: “Defeats paraded all at once
    Then take great comfort from all you have overcome”
    What a beautiful positive affirmation this is.
