As he hit me with each word,
I could never fluently speak his language.
….. For my native tongue is my Indigenous Heart;
the only muscle I have used to speak.
HE is a leader,
A leader of violence, rage, control and pain.
A leader of logic and rationality.
A decolonial machismo.
A revolutionary misogynist.
His capacity for change is the destruction he makes.
He nurtures his anger through projection.
He births apathy with a “God’s Eye.”
Because his God is not his creator.
His God is himself.
So how can I expect him to forgive the human in me?
How can I expect him to forgive the human in himself?
