2 days to go!

My Ancestors
By Kristin Richardson Jordan
 
I dig for those in my family tree
Closeted histories tucked away in the leaves
Pain’s buried then deep with longings to forget
And attempts to protect the children
So now in this generation
I dig through these leaves
Fishing for remnants and missing memories
Stories about how my people survived
For there is great strength here tucked inside my family tree
