#BlaPoWriMo – Amen

It dawned on me
after citing a quote
and asking for an Amen –

I live in a secular
white world, where some folks
might not know
what an Amen is.

I write for multiple
audiences, cultures,
and I have multiple
personalities for dealing
with each of many
multiple worlds.

And I am quadri-lingual,
at least on most days,
moving back and forth
across these worlds –
so let it be.

  1. Thanks so much for participating in BlaPoWriMo! I love your poem. I also like how you worked the definition of Amen into it also. We often change how we represent ourselves when dealing with other cultures, races, religions, etc. Like you said in your poem “multiple personalities” for “multiple worlds.” Definitely a way to “wear the mask.”
