Clutched in the palm of two worlds...

Clutched in the palms of two worlds, she gasps for air while contemplating arrival. This was her first venture across the oceans.  She’d resided in rural Ayiti since infancy, and now enclosed within this winged boat her reunion with Mama was eminent, yet inconceivable in nature.

 Her parents had emigrated to ’lot bo’ the United States in hopes of fulfilling their dreams, leaving her behind. While abroad Papa was brutally murdered, so judgment and ambitions of this better world was primarily induced by confusion.  

Now 15 years later it’s her turn to travel with aspiration of a 'better' tomorrow.
