David Newton, a classically trained sculptor in the European tradition, has dedicated his career to transforming ordinary African-American people and forgotten historical moments into unforgettable, timeless monuments of beauty.
Tears, Assurance And Consolation
Anguish and torment have taken over their souls
Psychologically and physically scarred, they seek comfort
The soul is willing to forgive but the mind finds it hard to forget
Because the scar is like an image hanging on the wall
My heart believes there is God, yet I try to find out if Africans have God
I want to know why so much pain?
Why so many tears from my eyes?
Why a particular race should pass through such a rough road?
Do I have to believe that God created man in his own image?
As the moon unravels wonders
I will take the opportunity to free my mind
The shackles are already removed from my feet
I heard the voice calling and saying trust in Jesus
His blessings, no money can buy and no one can steal from you.
