ACCRA

i needed that trip

to Ghana so badly;

for healing, 

for restoration,

for learning

and love;

and Lord

gave me

a beautiful boy

who rode horses on the beach

night-dark of skin

with strong hair of coils

and an undaunted

spirit.

and we loved and fought

and traveled

to Cape Coast

and Kumasi 

and Takoradi

together;

bonded by our proximity,

our history, 

our faith

and time.

until my stay there

was no more…

and i returned

to the daily struggle

and lonliness

that plagues humans

and African-kind

who reside

in hostile

lands.
