In Response

Her words seep through my skin

Fermenting in my mind

Bringing forth the juxtaposition

Of culture and reality

As I slowly fade into the story

I melt from my own existence

And become a voice in

A world not my own

As I regain consciousness

I still hold a piece of my experience

From the words that flowed

Through her lips

The crisscrossing melding of two cultures

Fades into my perceptions

Carrying with it thoughts and ideas

A moment of realization

To carry with me

And become a part of what I want to be.
