Race Relations

It took violence
To bring about change
How can we know what our ailments are
Without learning of them from trauma?
How can we SEE ourselves
without being reminded by disappointment?
Is there another way?
Is there another way?


Bumping into things
Salt in our wounds
Is the only indication of
What direction we should go
It is our only compass to where
Our wholeness lies
