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
