Excerpt from “The Soil We Till”
Book By Demond Jackson
” Yeah! Ya’ll can go on without me. Only when a seed falls on the ground and dies, will it not bear fruits. And all you ladies have conquered hatred, and replaced ignorance, with wisdom and understanding. You have grown. Now it’s time to bear fruits. I’m so proud of ya’ll.
I’m most proud of you Ms. Ling. That child really needs her mother to help her be a good mother…and my dear Lisa, my daughter and my friend… Remember, the seeds we sow…are the fruits we bear.
See the Almighty created all women in the image of Mother Nature. We are the universal soil from which humanity development is dependent upon in order to ascend…be it for the betterment of mankind or our destruction. It is only by the fruit of our labor can men act like Gods and a Queen take her rightful place.
A seed is merely an object, a idea created by the Almighty and the power of mankind’s universal mind. The soil is Earth, Wind, Fire and Water, the energy which is need to give life to all creation. Our existence is dependent upon giving to the universe that which it gives to us…Life…Freedom…Love…and Peace. But when we refuse to give that which it gives to us so unselfishly…the soil we till…the seeds that flourish…surely will bear fruit that will cause pain, destruction and moral dissension, be it natural or unnatural.
Ladies, as sisters of Mother nature, no matter the storms, conditions or disaster, we can pull from all the elements of life…and create lands where the waters once ruled. Build a nation one child at a time and heal all wounds with the love only a Mother can provide…WE ARE THE SOIL WE TILL. We are the weeds of racism, sexism, oppression and hatred. And it is our obligation as it was…is…and always will be…to weed our gardens and till the soil…”
