Memes, The Voice, and Avocado: Think of others. How do you sleep at night? Your body is resting but your soul is troubled. I use writing to show you that I am a whole person. I know that between what is meant & not said & what is said but not meant, much of love is lost. While some people face more suffering than others, I will represent the oppressed, I will define myself on my own terms as the fluidity of the f*ckry continues to exist. It is not for anyone else to define yourself but you & a culture that loves you. Some days I am a black man, Some days I am an African man, Some days I am an African woman, Some days I am a Palestinian child, Or an animal trying to stop the unnecessary slaughter of life for capitalism. Some days I am a tree in a rainforest about to be destroyed, some days I am a native trying to stop a pipeline... when we work together we can achieve whatever. Some days I have no money & I am fighting against governmental cuts, as I need to feed my family. Some days I am a labourer in a coltan mine, or on an avocado plantation, somedays I imagine myself working in Barbados on the sugar plantations, picking tea in Sri Lanka, or rice in China. Some days I am from West Papua, or an aboriginal Australian forced into a concentration camp some call a reservation. Some days I am homeless on the streets of London, other days I am a woman who is a victim of sexual violence & police brutality. Everyday I am me, I wish that we could just all be one, just another member of the global human race, but you are reading this in English, my post colonial tongue appeals to you because I was educated in the Uk & have a western passport, because of the violence carried out by the colonisers who created borders. Yet those refugees in the camp in Calais, who only speak Arabic & not french don't matter to many, this is why you have to be the voice, of those silenced by the systems that benefit a few but destroy many others. Today I might be a sex slave in Romania or a tortured man in Guantanamo bay, tomorrow I might be a political prisoner in Angola... I will sleep better knowing that my life isn't just for me. chakabars
