Something Uncovered

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 9:01 pm

Sometimes you are only
told one side of the story.

That side you are given
is sometimes scantily
scribbled with ends untied
and pieces unconnected.

Despite researching
efforts for a while dead ends.

Little pieces traversing
times and places of information
closing chronological separation
forging links to a past generation.

After digging and piecing
snippets a major breakthrough landed.

Suddenly many unknowns take
on a new understanding of time
of place of decisions made
and of sacrifice long paid.

A new development uncovered sometimes
useless sometimes more valuable than life itself.

People always ask me why
I have such a heart for “different”
parts of New York I was not sure now I know
I just discovered my father was born there.

My Father
Born and raised at 174 St. Nicholas Ave
Harlem and Washington Heights
