This is the dream (2)
I was born into a world of hate.
I was told to aspire, to strive.
To become off-white, as whiteness was denied me.
Life was meant to be tolerable.
I was told to tolerate.
And grant allowance for other’s intolerance.
A dialectic posed against me.
My life’s design.
Fated to this moment.
Determined not to progress beyond this point.
This is the dream
