Return of the Raven (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)

Remember me, the raven in your window
A hardened stare into your eyes
With lightening flashing to set you blind
What you saw, no longer there

Behold these images of native gods
Your test so now begins
Bringing a rush to shake your soul
And leave you longing more

Now fear sets in, it clouds you mind
Severing all of your senses
In one swift hit, brought to your knees
What you were, no longer are
