Wadada Leo Smith: Ten Freedom Summers and Me, 2013
I have almost forgotten my dream.
But it was there then,
In front of me, Bright like a sun-
Between me and my dream.
Rose until it touched the sky-
I am black.
I lie down in the shadow.
No longer the light of my dream before me,
Only the thick wall.
Only the shadow.
My dark hands!
Break through the wall!
Find my dream!
Help me to shatter this darkness,
To smash this night,
To break this shadow
Into a thousand lights of sun,
Into a thousand whirling dreams
