Anti-racist

Academic texts don't speak
They can't express lived experience
So I beg you, hold my hand a little
Lead me towards the truth
Your anger is valid
But it also stands between us
I know my ignorance isn't fair
And I know you are tired
But if you can give me your patience
I am open and eager to hear
I'm will de-center and shut up
Because I want to learn and be better
My white ego may be fragile
But I'm ready to let it shatter
I accept that I am part of the problen
I'm trying to be an ally.
