Neb the Great - Shadows of the Past
by Ann Frailey
The Harlem Renaissance Way Down South
Don't miss the purposes you were meant to fufill when you chose your family.
In the days before my birth
I searched and searched all over Earth
For the place I should be born
And true friends with whom to learn.
And so I found a family
Where my goals were apt to be.
A place where I could make amends
To those who had once been my friends.
And they in turn could change to right
All past wrongs they'd done in spite
And we would work to clean the slate
That marred our love with ancient hate.
It was a chance none should miss
It's not every day you can do this.
This unique moment we knew not when
Would ever pass our way again.
So God and I we made a plan
That I be born and take a stand.
To fight what won't allow to be
True friendship in my family.
To struggle hard and be true to plan,
Wallowing and distraction banned.
Seize every day's opportunity
To become true and real in every way.
And so I came to these fine folk
As memories of each one awoke
And true happiness filled our souls
At the thought of fulfilling true goals.
And for a time it seemed good
As I tried to do what I should.
To follow through with the plan I'd made
And to see that all my debts were paid.
But it wasn't long before 'twas clear
We were not struggling year by year.
Wasted time and wasted days
Full of distractions and pointless ways.
Each one going his own way
No time to talk or share the day.
No time to express thoughts and leanings
Or ask now "What is the meaning?"
And so we thwarted God's great plan
That had joined us in a happy band.
We were busy bodies with no feeling
Passing up chances for growth and healing.
So I say to all who'll hear,
"Dont waste your family years.
Struggle with each other every day!
Help each other find your way!"
For every day we fail and squander
Time God gave us to strive and ponder
The reason we all came together
We lose ourselves almost forever.
