Toni Payne Releases New Poem titled “Darkness Eludes Me”
Darkness eludes me, I stand mighty before it, fresh and blessed living without fear. I challenge its monstrosity, it challenges my audacity
You think you have guts, it says to me. I know I’m on top, I say to it, riding gallantly into history, those who despise me, who try to deprive me, right behind me, watching in awe, secretly they wish to applause, what destiny has caused, their words laced with envy, they wish they could remind me, of a past that is behind me.
Darkness Eludes me because I know my fears, stomped on my weakness, lifted my strength. Flaunted the good, made the bad a faded dream. My glory not to be demeaned.
If darkness thinks it has a place in my world, ill tell it that it was nothing but a wild dream. Misplaced in its mission, especially its vision, because I stand before it, as powerful as Aphrodite, riding gallantly into your History.
