Family Tree

For years it was only

her – him – him – & me

All the arguments
( smh, lol )
We STRONGLY…….disagreed

No matter what though.
You betta believe

It was always
JUST we

Decades we spent
learning knowledge from our tree

I grew to be.
Like her.
Indeed.

Yet….
With all SHE did
We could NEVER be prepared for
when her SOUL
was set FREE.

Then there was only us.

THREE.

A few years later

still hard to conceive.

THREE.
became just HE
and ME.

I had to remember.

What I mean is…
I had the CLARITY to SEE

That SHE is still with me /
and so is HE.

as well as SHE / and so is SHE

and so is SHE / and so is HE.

THAT’S when I realized

AGAIN / it was WE.

THAT’S how I feel

THAT’S how EYE SEE.

NO matter what I’ve been through

NO matter what I may come to believe

My ANCESTORS WALK WITH ME

AND BECAUSE OF THEM

I WILL ALWAYS BE FREE
