short story

Illegally Bred

History has so many facets; each it’s own perspective. Grab a magnifying glass and study.



they didn’t come here legal.

they were brought here illegal.

torture erased who they were.

bred to accept paternal abandonment.

bred to swallow disfunction.

saw illegal treatment as stations,

in life’s organization.

willed not to be equal, but to return

to self.

free to choose, love, work, home,


willed to be respected like the wealthy,

who build coffers on backs.

willed to be so equal, color is inconsequential.

some of us are close to there, almost.

but most are still so far.

even now decades past the original crimes.

brown people suffer.
