Dear Death,

When I entered your presence

I realized I made a bad decision. 

I wanted to go back home

 

I miss my friends, cousins, and especially my parents. 

I thought they hated me. 

But as I look up I see their tears falling like rain. 

 

I want to go home. 

Eat all the good food I miss. 

 

I see my ancestors who were enslaved. 

They tell me that I am lucky to not have your family torn apart in front of your eyes.

 

I want to go home. 

My life should have been valued. 

I have a long life ahead of me. 

 

I want to go home. 

I realize my bad mistakes. 


I want to go home. 

I want to change.

 

I want to go home. 

I am ready to leave.


I want to go home. 

I want to leave. 

 

I want to go home. 

If resurrection is real let it happen to me.

Let me see my parents again.

 

I want to go home.

I want to go home.

I want to go home.


I love you Mom

I love you Dad

I am ready


Welcome Back

The inspiration to write the poem came from reading Kobe Bryant's poem "Dear Basketball".
