My Ancestors
printer friendly version
My ancestors are from Romania,
From Poland,
From Bulgaria,
From Holland,
From Germany and Italy,
From England and France.

Mis ancestros son de Espa?a,
de Paraguay,
de Argentina,
de Uruguay,
de Bolivia,
Y de Brasil.
De Puerto Rico,
de Chile,
y Mexico,
y Guatemala,
Just to name a few.

My ancesta's are from Algeria,
From Lybia,
From Niger and Nigeria.
From Namibia,
And Zambia,

My ancestors are from China,
From Tibet,
From Mongolia,
From Japan,
And some from Korea,
Yet mainly Vietnam.

Our ancestors are from Famine,
From Misery,
From Persecution,
From War,
From Humankind.

Why is it that the light skins,
However varied and dispersed,
Can unite among themselves,
And the darker skins,
However varied and dispersed,
Can unite among themselves,
Yet the two,
Cannot seem to converge?
Shall they ever?
Shall we ever?

(from "Off to Catch the Sun" -- 2001)

(Georgia, USA)
