A question of identity
An entry in the Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry
Where are you from?
…one of the most loaded questions I think people can get this day and age...
Does that mean where I was born?
Where my parents are from?
What language I speak at home or what language I am capable of speaking?
How I carry myself or how I dress?
What food I like to eat?
How authentically I subscribe to my grandparents and ancestors beliefs and practices?
Does my answer change how you should … or would treat me?
I am from Earth
I am a child of the world
and I take the best of the worlds I have been privileged to be a part of...
am proud of who I am,
my journey through life and my beginnings.
