Black Nucleus

I’m scared to have daughters

and he’s scared to have sons.

What’s stopping us?

Memories of unwanted taunting;

     “Midnight, asphalt, ugly…”

beatings, strange men in the night…

Simply put,

his flashbacks and my nightmares.

How can we create a family with the burden of so much fear?

How are we to move forward?
