The Christmas season continues for us as a people of faith
We have shared songs of celebration and joy
About something as unexpected and mysterious
at the coming of this simple birth
that stands to transform this world
All throughout social media and through movies that I have watched
there was a sense of Unity as people, regardless of who they were or where they had journeyed from
Came to be gathered as one.
is that so strange
That in this season of joy
a mighty people locked in exile would too, celebrate with joy their heritage?
Those principles that guided their ancestors
and in times of strife and chaos
they lean on?
Many will argue that Kwanzaa is nothing more than radical language
is it only because Kwanzaa can give nothing more
than pride, self-determination
that Kwanzaa fluidly flows from the faith in the Divine Creator
giving us purpose, rooting us to God
and footing to concretely stand on this world?
