Ancestor Poet Hon. Marcus Garvey

Man's Immortality

Eternal is my lease on life,
If courage I can find to live.
My soul and mind are both in one,
And Nature but my elder self,
Of all I see I am the lord,
Including earth and stars and sea:
From time immemorial I'd been
A part of Almighty God.

He was the Other Self of me,
The All in One, and I a part.
There is no life without my own,
And there's no life without the God:
He is the Source of all you see
Divine, but I a part of Him.

September 14, 1927
