No 'Other" Way
There they are looking at me again staring, gaping, gawking like a circus-side-show. They look at my skin golden, tawny, beige and at my hair softly curled, wavy One group says: "Tragic, doomed, halfbreed" Another group says "confused, zebra, oreo" Opposite sides of the same ignorant coin. The best and worst of both in my blood but when they ask how I feel, what I am I tell them I would have it no 'other' way. ~Christopher Appling
Her Mother did'nt attend the wedding, her Father refused to pay for and the man she loves could'nt understand why? Her mother asked a question, her father hung his head hoping he could die. What will you do with those BLACK babies when your marriage becomes a lie?
