Two Worlds

I am from two worlds
I am from one world overflowing with rich culture
A world with spices
that can inflame one's taste buds and sense of desire
A world where my people
fought for the right to be the only country in Africa
to never be colonized
A world where Christianity was born
A world known as Ethiopia

However, I am from another world as well
A world with a gruesome start
A world started on the bones of slaves and Native Americans
A world where injustices continue to occur
A world known as the land of the free
But is it really free?

So, I am from two worlds
A world with thirteen months of sunshine
And a world with a lifetime of pain
