You're Not Welcomed
Wave of emotions
Flood my being
I can only imagine
The door being closed in my face
I have no place to go
Ripped from my family's grasps
Waiting on the other side is my freedom
You're not welcomed here is what the sign reads
A melting pot?
The land of the free?
Innocent not doing anything wrong
You have helped make America great
Your only sin is what you believe in
It could have been me
The feeling of traveling abroad and coming home
To be turned away
Or you are coming to see a sick loved one
I am sorry but you're not welcomed
I watched as the elderly man wept
His tears ran down his cheek and he said I am a good person
We stand with him in solidarity and can't explain
The only thing we can all do now is pray
Pray for the families separated
Pray for peace
Pray for they know not what they do!!!

Beating the clock before I go . Letting the words flow to the paper from my mind. People reading my work say " I couldn't put it down" " I read your book in one day" and " It was like you were writing my life story". The poems touch on subjects of love, death, incest, testing faith, and more. There is tributes to MLK, 9/11 and Oscar Grant.
