The transitioning

I heard,

my heart sank.

A tear formed.

I sighed deeply.

I never met you,

but my heart said otherwise

in lieu of your residence inside.

I could not disguise

the selfishness,

my human nature


mourning your passing

instead of


your transition to a higher administration.

You haven’t left

You’ve merely progressed


Beloved, Mother, Elder, Teacher

into the pantheon of the ancestors

Immortality is your mandate.

Because of the power

your words showered upon many

that caused them to

unshackle, bypass, deny

the cancer of


to become






fathomed bypassing the chasm

The bridge

crossing the bridge.
