Down Like America

Poem by Kandle Jones

Posted on

Down like roots of a tree

down like ancestors be-questing

down deep like hope love and peace

down is a creative positivity

down like cookies and ice cold milk

down like civil rights for real

down is an optimistic chill pill

down like four flat black tires

down like women and men who fight fires

down like courage to inquire

down is keep going even when tired

down like rain that will fall

down like bone pain that fore calls

down like prophecy warning us all

where there's smoke there's fire be strong stand tall

down like sweet potato pie

down like parks and roller coaster rides

down like city and country mountain sides

down like America, home for many tribes.
