Heritage

My ancestors were slaves

Not all but I bet you I can name their names

In a dream

For that is when they speak to me

First stop Santo Domingo

Christopher Columbus you are so evil

500 year curse is lifted

yet the after-effects still feel lethal

Why is that?

Why do I feel their pain as if I was whipped in the back?

in a world that can now be beautiful for me

Im left feeling so lost about my identity

if I stayed in the motherland

maybe I wouldn’t feel as lost as I actually am
