Angela Davis

Rookie (1976 / USA)

Beginning A New Life


Beginning of a new life,
Ending of the old
Security found with another,
Fear of loss
Happiness at it's arrival
Sorrow at it's delay
Calm acceptance
Exciting embrace
Two bodies joining
One heart united
Love

    Oh, Angela, I love this. It is, as Sridhar stated, simple and powerful fact expressed. It is difficult to accurately portray such a powerful emotion, yet you have done so remarkably well, and with so few words. (Report) Reply
