    I yelled at them
    Shouting I see white people ‘
    Cause I figured out what they looked like
    I got punished by the white woman
    She did not appreciate being called white woman
    Being told that she can help me

    But I meant something else
    Like let me out of this place
    Do not medicate me
    Yet her righteous indignation had enough
    Many men came and I blacked out
    As the medicine seeped into my body

    I became clear
    As in 3 – 2 – 1
    I sat up in my bed
    Spoke to the black woman
    Who was positioned to watch me
    I was dying to sleep and my body would not cooperate
    I reached out to her to let her know I understood

    I think she told me to stop telling the doctors they are fools
    That the nursing staff was a high quality
    That the nursing staff at Downstate and the medial staff of Bellevue
    Should get married for the community needed that type of team
    They dismissed me easily for they were sure it was insanity
    Puzzled that I spoke the languages I did
    Confused that I did not know I spoke English
    Passed two psychiatric evaluations
    By two separate psychiatrists
    My medication reactions disqualified me as needing care
    I felt white people were tricking me through black hands
    I walked out of that place before they could commit me
    People wanted me to stop saying I see white people but I was surprised
    I wish I could tell them there is a strange world outside my window
    I am kind of wondering how to get back to Jamaica
    The only Africa I have ever known
    This all started cause two black men came in my room
    I feared they were there to rape me
    I ran down the hall yelling there are two black men in my room
    And right now I see black people and I want to be under their protection

    I wanted to reply earlier but my internet connection kept dropping on me.

    As you know I appreciate the time you take to read all poetry.

    Peace
