Poem 7:Blue Holiday


Blue Holiday



Don't matter how bright the day
or how new the moon
Trouble is always in sight
and my mood is always Blue

Even if I pray
before I start the day
and give The Father his due
Weary is just down the street
and my my mood is bound to be Blue

Lord, take me now
cause I'm just about through
ain't no use in carryin' on
cause my mood is always Blue

Dedicated to the memory of Ms. Billie Holiday born on this day in 1915. Billie Holiday, like so many of our young girls, was the victim of sexual assault at an early age. However, women of all ages are being assaulted even as I type these words. Big thanks to Xavier for promoting awareness.
