Ethiopian babe.

The moment I saw him get it that bus..

I saw something about him that only I can tell.

He sat next to me, as he started talking

My heart opened up to listen

My eyes sparkled at his stories

He was Ethiopian, I looked at his hair

And I was ready

to make Ethiopian babies and

I actually watched them play with daddy

Girls who would have hair that I didn’t.

Then moved to Ethiopia.

And look 7 years younger

I smiled the whole time.. The journey was worthwhile

But then I had to alight at my stage.

Never mind….. I’m an overthinker
