Welcome Home Brother May 18, 2016

Back to
my roots.

“welcome home brother”
they said,
after the
lies,
that never went
unsaid;

after the baboon laughed
and the leopard coughed
and the monkeys peed
up on a tree.

under that huge
black sky.

who was I,
but one
more
black guy

come home?

 

But now.

now I know.

and beware all,
where
I go.

because I have seen my home
and no longer do I see
what you tried make me.

I remember

who
I
am.

frightened yet?
