Where I Come From
My story doesn't start on early this morning,
it comes from the people before me
- my ancestors.
It will come from the people after me
- the memory I leave behind.
It comes from the names I was called
and how they become part of me
- if not my entire self.
I started with the things I was told
and how I came to deny them
and it stays as an ever evolving succession of breaths and places.
My story didn't start this morning
and it shall not die with the sunset
