    Where I'm From

    Once the"Outcasted"now in numbers deep,We
    came in on the hush-hush as our fathers made
    their creep.As babies started"boomin"to the
    bi-racial beat.Full breaded infants made a
    retreat.Prejudice runs rampant seems to never
    dissipate.Yet mixed children are produced at
    a staggering rate.What once was unaccepted,a
    family secret to be hid.Is now a growing fac-
    tor that can't be rid.I myself am an example
    of the hybrid offspring.Of the beginning gen-
    erations one of the 1st they came to bring.I
    lived thru hate and wonder,wore the title as
    a"Racial Blunder".But by the time I bore my
    own.There were thousands just like me they
    cloned.My children I will raise amongst a
    generation new.Where a pure breed is non-
    existent & having both parents is rare and
    few.I know not what the ending or the status
    of the outcome.All I know is where we're go-
    ing is the place that I am from.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
