Where I’m From

Tell me where I’m from.

Explain the culture that made me,

the genes that gave me a kufi instead of shades.

Never been into meadowlarks or glades

yet I appreciate the romantics.

Poets that paved the way.

 

You see no one is born a slave

But restricted humanity breeds partiality to your own kind.

Be careful what truths you accept into your mind.

If you let assumptions lead you might be disgusted by what you find.

Perhaps it’s semantics,

Logical gymnastics that bind

 

But if anyone could be summed up in one word it would be Human.
