• They ask me to write down
    my race

    and i think
    and think very seriously

    if i should write down the truth
    and have my answer read

    inside this body
    i have a grandfather
    fighting for our freedom

    i have a other mother
    tending to her ill daughter

    i have a woman
    getting married at 18

    i have a dog
    dying at the age of 16

    i have many things inside this body
    but i stop
    and simply write down
    My Race? Why do you ask?
