"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor."
Desmond Tutu 1931

I don’t have a family tree

It's never been that simple

Its closer to a web 

But it's not just a web of lies


Its a web of love 

And hope that has been 

Forming without me 

Even knowing

They are proud of me

And I of them 

We love each other

And want to see 

Eachother happy 

But happy feels so 

Far away 

I wanna say that I am

But I’m not

This poem was written after another less hopeful one. I'm not happy yet but I'm getting there. The web of love that my family is has gotten me a lot closer to happiness. I just hope I've helped do the same for them. I love y'all never doubt that.
