Overview

ANOTHER DREAMER

The sixties was a very terrible time in America history, if you were born black, and living in Mississippi, especially Alligator, Ms.
I was born July 5, 1960 to a mother who was only thirteen and a father that was evey bit of eighteen. That's explain why I was
passed from one family member to another. somewhere between the age of one and three years old, I sustained third degree
burns on my back and buttock from boiling hot water that slipped out of the hands of my niece. Sometime later, I got an ear
infection that made my right ear run continuously. It was not until a couple years later when I moved (what to be the last time,
out of many) with my Grandmother (Hattie) that I was taken to a doctor in Shelby, Ms. Dr. Holloway removed a dead blue
blowfly and a large maggot that was very much alive out of my right ear. This also explain why I talk different from the rest
of my brothers and sisters. Growing up in my Grandmother house was not a bed of roses either. For starter she had some reservation buried deep in her subconscious concerning the darker complexion of our race. Me being the darkest, brought
nothing but pain, shame and the feeling of indifferent. In her mind (may God bless her soul), boys should not bath no more
than once a month. Two pairs of trousers were sufficient for a full school term. Stories about the outhouse. the wood burning
stoves, days without soap or toothpaste and the many days of going to school with lard on my face and in my hair could fill
volumes. Nevertheless, for now digest some words of poetry and if somewhere, a line or two touches your soul, then I
have done my job.
