mongrel

Some days I wonder if I
will ever belong anywhere
Not that it’s killed me so far,
Not yet. No. But still.
no homogenousculture
to fit into.
no Ethnic Pride
to boast of.
no Racial Identity
to say
These are my people
no Pride of Nationality
or Religion
to cause me
to hate another
or think them less
than me.
just a human
I’m just a human
a human mongrel
a little bit of this
and a little bit of that.

There are many of us, you know
Many of us
mongrels
Not enough to change the world
not enough, no.
But enough to
sometimes
not always
but sometimes
not be alone
