A video reading of my poem ‘Foreigners, You’re Welcome’
Wageni mwakaribiswha translates to ‘Foreigners, You’re Welcome’, in case that isn’t clear.
This was one of the many poems I wrote in tribute to my mission trip to Kakamega, Kenya. I am still in contact with my ‘family’ over there. I think about them way more often than is healthy. This was written almost two years after returning stateside. I do still sing to myself in Swahili, if I’m not paying much attention to myself.
