To Be In My Skin


Dr. Harrison’s poem To Be In My Skin was posted on Joyce Godwin Grubbs’ blog. Have a look and read some of her thoughts about Dr. Harrison.

HERE is the link to the website.


To Be In My Skin

 If you came into my skin
It would take you a long time to 
Get used to
All the trouble,

I am a rooting weed 
A broken rock
A travelling cloud 
You cannot touch,

I am a bridge,
I am Jerusalem
The Intifada
The Holocaust
Looking for Redemption,

To be in my skin is 
To feel God
Know Satan
And make my birthday wish
For World Peace.
