"so help me god," they say
before unleashing a forked tongue
to create fantasies in the minds of men
but I call upon the Most High JAH
Almighty defender of truth and righteousness
and step forth, armed only with my conscience. Selah.
*I am enjoying a week of prayer. I couldn't resist pulling out my half-a-century-old bible for this one. Closing my eyes, I exhaled. Turning the very, very worn pages, I could almost feel the earnest prayers of all those before me who held this bible while on bended knees, seeking help or deliverance from JAH. And out of this divine consciousness, came this prayer for our brothers and sisters around the world who are fighting to prove their innocence. May you all find great strength and courage in JAH.
