where I live

grew up

has shaped me

in ways that I do not know

until I reach a different shore

land upon other fields

& then your ways

which you too

have taken for granted

show me in shadow

light up in relief

our unsimilarities

creating difficulties

or opportunities

for learning

but it is only then

in our conflicts

we become aware

of how we have been formed

by unconscious traditions

swallowed

in our mothers milk
