Poem | Andre' Brenardo Taylor | Lack Of Spiritual Significance

Andre Brenardo Taylor combines poetry, song and performance with social activism. Poets always make change and so he did,  as union organizer fighting ( and winning) for justice for company’s employees. His songs are truth. His songs are prayers and hymns. He offers his spirit on the altar of language. And if you have him as a friend, you’ll need no other.  Grace Cavalieri 


Lack Of Spiritual Significance

 

I’ve Been Living Black So Long

I Forgot I Was Spirit

And Spirit Has No Color

 

I Forgot I Was Spirit

And Spirit Has No Color

Thus I Can’t Be Judged By This 

 

Since Spirit Has No Color

I Cannot Be Judged By This

So Why Do I Live In Fear 

 

I Cannot Be Judged By This

So Why Do I Live In Fear 

And Why Do They Feel Afraid

 

Hey Why Do I Live In Fear 

And Why Do They Feel Afraid

Will We Ever Know The Why

 

So Why Do They Feel Afraid

Will We Ever Know The Why

I Can Only Speak For Me

 

Will We Ever Know The Why

I Can Only Speak For Me

I’ve Been Busy Living Black

Listeners have called him preacher, prophet, historian, revolutionary, troubadour. Four decades of writing provide abundant testimony. Brenardo's journey as a songwriter led him to a café in 1996 where he encountered 'Spoken Word', and the poet in him began to flourish. Since then he has performed in venues alongside Tonya Marie Matthews, (Ja Hipsta) Reggie (Love Jones) Gibson, Gayle Danley, Saul Williams, and a host of other renown poets, such as Sonya Sanchez & Amiri Baraka. Among other crowning achievements for Brenardo he counts opening for activist Dick Gregory @ the G.A.O.'s 'Blacks in Government', Heritage and Horizons program, being one of the longest active members of 'Poets in Progress' a group under the leadership of D.C. Poet Laureate Dolores Kendrick, and also being a co-founder of poets and artists For Obama. Brenardo is actively involved in presentations and workshops for children & adults in the area school systems, and as a regular ambassador to Jamaica for the Read Across Jamaica Foundation .
