dynasty

 

“they say i was born black

but i never believed them

i came out of the womb with a fist in the air when the doctor smacked my foot i cried, “freedom!”

i was born free

and the blood that trickled down my weary face bore the scars of many cultures

whose power ruptured the dreams of my mother,

i was born dead

scorned by the promises of white lips who fashioned ships to move my grandmother from her kingdom to the king’s dim-lit quarters

they say i was born black

but i was born perfect

a gift to those whose insecurities needed comfort sent to redeem the lost tribes

striving for a vision

radiating spirituality like the cause of religion”
