Belonging

I have never felt so at home

Belonging


Those who see only dirty and garbage lined streets
Potholes so deep they reach the inner sanctum of desolation
Don?t let their eyes feast on luscious trees with fruit on
Heavy branches dangling and caressing
Street children?s faces with outstretched hands
Dark brown mud on faces that looked like me
Faces that knew what I have known
Hot and heavy rain falling on firecracker personalities
Belonging to vitriolic men
Vivacious paint on women?s faces that didn?t judge
And the smell of phosphorus hanging in the air
And the sound of the tortilla making
I have never felt so at home
I have never felt so loved
