randomly, i was born
with more than I can ever even
comprehend. in a nation of liberty
founded on the backs of indigenous
people, slaves and immigrants.
i am white.
the blessing of education and unearned power and a fluke
of skin color. I am the child of
pleasure and privilege for
I have never suffered,
never truly wanted. I am stuffed. Every day,
I have no thirst or need that ever goes unabated.
I am randomly born.
The question is
how will I use this strange power?
No longer random,
by giving up what’s “mine;”
becoming a part of Sacrifice.
