“I know now that once I longed to be white.”
“If you sing too often of woe, yours or your sisters', you may be charged with being 'too personal,' 'too autobiographical,' too much a woman who cries out, who acknowledges openly, shamelessly, the pain of living and the joy of becoming free.”
“... as my hair turns white / my anger moves, a storm into the sunlight / where women and men fight alongside each other / in the battles against degradation, poverty, manipulation, fear / where anger is pure as the love I have for freedom / where desire is the catalyst for action / where the possibilities are rice and flowers and children / growing stronger everywhere.”
Nellie Wong, U.S. poet, activist
