Jerusha Rai

Island

Jerusha Rai



first came the rain
it washed my sins away
then came the breeze 
it had me begging please
then came the earth
he said the devil's got my soul
now come the fire
that will swallow me whole

i walked off the land
walked right off the shore
i swam to an island
where i built my home

and when she passed by 
she sensed that something was wrong
she thought i had an inkling
of what path we should be on
and though i might claim
that i came a long way
through heaven and through hell
please and thanks i did say
