My 1st thought was that my blackness was some sort of a curse/

My highest thought asked me if I knew my worth/ then asked me if darkness is the worse/ then how come we showed up 1st?/ loved each other/ then gave birth/ to the rest of the Earth/

My 1st thought was that the statement “revenge was a dish best served cold” is most certainly true/ My highest thought was that payback never quite works out exactly the way you wanted it to/ so instead what I learned how to do/ is let your happiness exude/ sit back and watch what it do/

My 1st thought was that the Devil was aware of my every decision/ fucking with my mind and vision/ trying to get me to choose/ wrong/ My highest thought moved further beyond/ The notion that source could create something that would start a war against it/ that it might lose/

My 1st thought was that when Dr. Martin Luther King said that he’d been to the mountain top in the “I Have a Dream” speech/ the good Dr must have looked God directly in her face/ My highest thought  was that last line was actually my highest thought/ at that particular time/ sent to teach/ what the glory feels like when witnessing God’s grace/

My 1st thought was that love conquers all. My highest thought was that love is all there is/

My 1st thoughts wondered if you really had to sell your soul/ for gold/ and popular beliefs into what success is by someone else’s definition/ My highest thought was that love wouldn’t like that decision/ so my soul wouldn’t give them permission/ to have a itself auctioned off so the flesh could follow someone else’s vision/

My 1st thoughts were incredibly critical/ of them/ her and him/ that and this/ me/ myself and I/ My highest thoughts are incredibly spiritual/ towards them/ her and him/ that and this/ me myself and I/
