    PLEASURE I CAME,
    MY FATHER'S SEED PLANTED IN MY MOTHER'S WOMB.

    NAKED I CAME,
    BONE OF MY FATHER'S BONE AND FLESH OF MY MOTHER'S FLESH.

    SELFISH I CAME,
    THREE JOBS MY MOTHER WORKED TO SUPPORT US AFTER MY FATHER DIED.

    DEPENDENT I CAME,
    EIGHTEEN YEARS OF BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS MY MOTHER CRIED.

    NAIVE I CAME,
    IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'RE BLACK OR WHITE.

    ALONE I CAME,
    ALWAYS TOO DARK FOR THE WHITE MAN AND SOMETIMES TOO WHITE FOR THE BLACK MAN.

    SO BLACK I WENT.

    Interesting thought

    maxon, There comes a time in your life you have to follow your own step as directed by your heart. Yes, I know that feeling and in itself it si quite a wake-up call for no one can do the necessary steps but you. Your poetic suggestion shows just that and it does take time to learn your own self in this process, anyway, thanks for sharing your true self to the world.
