We learnt to take
refuge in the tales
spoken to us by
our father’s fathers.

We take comfort
in what time offers
our hungry bodies,
with our hands as plates.

a blind mind without
direction, clearly
shutting our imagination
from what life offers.

must learn to accept
our fathers’ fathers ways.
through the wrong path,
we would eventually kiss
