There is a veil over my eyes,
One thick, and made of fog,
Made of years of sighs,
And risen from a malodorous bog,


Reach out towards it I might,
But I shall sink into it,
Floundering and nothing but gray in sight,
Until I scramble out, and on the ground sit,


Staring into that curtain,
I feel it difficult to breathe, 
For it is evil and uncertain,
But to not know, makes me seethe,


I want to remember my history,
But, through the pain and sorrow, it is lost to me.

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
