My whiteness

feels like a weighty cloak

heavy-laden with privilege and

cross-stitched with unawareness.

I was swaddled in my whiteness

the moment I was born,

but oftentimes it felt

like I was wearing nothing

skinny dipping through life

oblivious to the blessings of life.

 

I’ve been wrapped in security

and cradled in a culture

woven with threads

of blatant bigotry

and subtle oppression.

I can never remove my whiteness

but the time has come

to completely refashion

the fabric of my inner world

and the pattern of our outer

world.
