To the Allies by Sarah Asia

“Whiteness”

Is not a thing
Except for what we’ve made it
How we choose to define it
Redline it

These parameters
Are not actual
Let us not forget
They are self-created

“Whiteness”

Is not a thing
Except for what we’ve made it
How we choose to define it
Redline it
To enslave
Economically
In the shadow
Of “civil rights”

You are not helping me
Because there is no you
But what boundary
You have created in your mind

But

Make no mistake
Whether you see it or not
Understand this or not:
You are my limb
And I am your thumb
What is done unto you
Is done unto me
And this is not poetry
You are not witnessing
Others around you
Suffering
Subjugated
It is You suffering
Subjugating
Your Self

And YOU
My Love
Are as responsible
For the care of your Self
As am I

To call you an ally
Removes you from
Your Body

There is no distinction
Between Us
But what we invent
In our minds

 

MORE ABOUT SARAH ASIA

My creative nature is not restricted to “making” art. I live and breathe as an Artist, see as the Artist sees, and weave my personal, professional, and creative life just as I please, in true Artist form. I live to sip inspiration and hunger to feed it.

I am a Creature of the Night, a consort of Nut and liaison of the Stars and the Trees. Luna breathes through my Blood that I may remember the secrets of the Mother from my Bones and whisper them across the winds like dandelion seeds for NTR to gestate at Her whim to bloom within the wombs of my Sisters.

I am We.
