IMPROVISATIONS

of
a

VISION

of

RADICAL HOPE:

LIFE / LIBERTY / HAPPINESS

X

ROUGH DRAFTS

of the

DECLARATION of INDEPENDENCE

I love imagining the
r/evolutionary collaborative
creative process
– the he/art beat of the exhilarating communal

JOY!!

Imagine

CREATING 

an action plan,

a BLUEPRINT

– not pale complacent obsolete armchair words, 
but,
a rising,

a “conceptual poetry slam”

of
vital catalytic luminous poems of words.
 

The FINAL draft

was

a marvel,

a synthesis of multiple compositions
of

calling OUT

the

crucible/anvil

of

responsive UPlifting

ACTIONS!

AMERICA,

is an

ongoing

unfolding

expansive

improvisation!!!

We hold these truths

to be

self-evident,

that all wo/men

are created equal,

that they

are endowed

by their Creator

with

certain unalienable

Rights,

that among these are

Life,

Liberty

and

the

pursuit

of

Happiness.”

Note:

 AMERICA

was 
founded on upholding

the freedom and the impunity

of
practicing one’s  personal “HIGHER POWER” faith and beliefs.

I selected the

Black National Anthem

for my entry on

Independence Day 2020.

Lift Ev’ry Voice

and

Sing

Lift ev’ry voice and sing
‘Til earth and heaven ring
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the list’ning skies
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on ’til victory is won

 

Stony the road we trod
Bitter the chastening rod
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died
Yet with a steady beat
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered
Out from the gloomy past
‘Til now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast

 

God of our weary years
God of our silent tears
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way
Thou who has by Thy might
Led us into the light
Keep us forever in the path, we pray
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee
Shadowed beneath Thy hand
May we forever stand
True to our God
True to our native land

“We are not enemies, but friends.
We must not be enemies.
Though passion may have strained,
it must not break our bonds of affection.
The mystic chords of memory will swell
when again touched,
as surely they will be,
by the

better angels of our nature.

President Abraham Lincoln
