Dream with eyes wide open &
hearts tilted up to the sky.
I occupy space as a previously colonised woman of colour in the matrix of coloniality; although I personally identify as a Tagalog, fishing-town daughter of the archipelago beyond the gender-binary. I'm an immigrant and a settler on unceded Indigenous land. I miss my homelands but am still collecting the resources to go back. I don't really know what I'm doing, other than I feel compelled to use my voice to speak truth to my experiences. I don't presume this will make a difference to others but it might. I'm a drop in the ocean that will break the bedrock of colonial injustices. This is the hope.
