To my White Master!

In your language
I learned to see the world
And imagine it.

In your language
I learned to share my thoughts
And pen my opinions.

In your language
I learned to hear the stories
Of your conquests.

In your language
I learned to witness
The tales of your tyranny.

In your language
I learned to unlearn
The hypocrisies of your freedom songs.

In your language
I learned your history
of lynchings and slavery.

In your language
I learned about you
And your lies.
