Incomplete

This poem is about one not being able to find their full identity. They may find many factors, but humans don’t have enough time to find every detail of their identity which makes them who they are. Faith may play a part in identity, but since religion is somewhat flawed, contradictory and has several loopholes, it doesn’t give one certainty when they’re trying to find information about their own identity. It’s also about corrupted people threatening the safety of others and preventing them from obtaining information regarding their identity.

Challenging this, among other liberal assumptions of the East Asian experience in the Western cultural sphere, this poem questions my market value as a creator beyond my racialised identity.

Life.

Going to Eritrea, I saw the faith and patriotism in people when having little to nothing. This made me re-evaluate how I view things in life whether it's difficulty with school or personal trials and tribulations I face. This poem reflects the respect and strength of my people, which I now see through me.
