Tracy Hawkins
Excerpt from Untitled
after “Untitled” (bird face and hand) by Stephen Dee Edwards

Behold I send you forth in this direction
I TOLD YOU TO GO LEFT YOU WENT RIGHT
Trust MY Direction
By MY HAND I will lead you
You are MY sheep for I am your SHEPHERD
Sending you out in the midst of wolves
The wolf will come in many forms of people we may even know
Trying to destroy you
Trying to deceive you
Trying to kill you
MY HAND will guide you
As you fly as a harmless dove
Remember MY HAND on your wing
Loving you
Comforting you
Providing for you
Protecting you
Helping you fly FREE
I am the Almighty HAND
I AM THE GREAT I AM
