Spreading my lashes outwards

Spreading my lashes outwards to the sun, moon and stars.

Connecting bodies as a rhizome,

Emerging here and there, lost in nowhere.

Moulding rhythms, rhymes, tones, flights and falls between the words.

Struggling to recall who I am, underneath the skin,

Upon my breath, in the movement of a limb.

Hovering anger is taking over me

I'm at the spot of the hatred of yours.


Walk away is what I learned

When you beat me

I dare not to rise

Your violence against me

Is for the society to praise


Yell, scream, draw my presence at unease

It is only of your humanity demise

Once it will happen to your siblings

Oh, how you'll regreat it, Jeez!
