Supremely African-American

by Trina Williams-Emigh

I sought refuge
Yet there was no escape
For the madness possessed me
And I’d thought I’d lost my place
In the world around me I did not exist
Yet for certain I felt free
But my silence was silent
And my blindness blind
Of what was evident I was not inclined
To hear
Or speak it
Or become aware
That I didn’t need to escape……because I’d always been there
And yes I felt free, for free I was
Now my silence is broken
And my blindness unveiled
I was never invisible
Been known since time began
For I am Supremely African-American
