The Haunting is racist and racial memories from my past I have struggled to overcome instead of allowing them to devour my spirit and keep me from experiencing true love. I have a brother, and partner in crime as it were, from another mother I am as close to as any person on this earth. He is white. If I continued to let The Haunting of racist and racial memories to rule and reign in my life, I could never and would never have this beautiful and loving relationship. The Haunting is a force in my life I thank my Higher Power I’ve had the courage to confront face to face and man to man and declare “…Yes, you are a part of me and the story that is my life. But, while you may be along for the ride, you don’t get to drive or control where life is taking me…” I’m glad to know a power in my life greater and more focused on the best in me and humankind than The Haunting. I glad I have my brother from another mother in spite of The Haunting.
