28 days of personal black history…to come

are we black? it’s not just the skin i’m in, you see
it’s earth and legends and fantasy.
for 2014, each day of 28 i’ll choose to share
and lay bare
some poetic or tale,
a veil
lifted to reveal some part of self shrouded beneath clouds of mystery,
that often begets ignorance and unfound truths.
you too, please share your roots with me,
together we’ll carve out a niche for our own personal his/her/theirstory,
and let it breathe
within the expanse of a rich and volatile legacy.
