J is for Journey • #atozchallenge #NaPoWriMo




born onto this land
learn to crawl then walk
walk on the bones of ancestors
learn to speak mother tongue
tongue meant to connect, but often isolate
forget the interconnecting filament
produce, consume, accomplish, acquire
then darkness closes in

    • Thank you. This poem was actually inspired by you in a way. You pointed out a phrase I used in a comment and I realized that it was a great phrase and this poem was born.
