Favorite Literature of Swaniel Genji Harrienger











{March 15, 2014}   City Called Heaven (The Norton Anthology of African American Literature, Second Edition, 2004)

I am a poor pilgrim of sorrow.
I’m in this wide world alone.
No hope in this world for tomorrow.
I’m tryin’ to make heaven my home.

Sometimes I am tossed and driven.
Sometimes I don’t know where to roam.
I’ve heard of a city called heaven.
I’ve started to make it my home.

My mother’s gone on to pure glory.
My father’s still walking in sin.
My sisters and brothers won’t own me
Because I’m tryin’ to get in.

Sometimes I am tossed and driven.
Sometimes I don’t know where to roam.
But I’ve heard of a city called heaven
And I’ve started to make it my home.
