Some context below if anyone needs it :):
I wrote this, a few months back, with a good friend for my school's writing contest on ethnic heritage. Ive recently received the results, and it turned out a couple of white kids won. As one surprised friend once said, "WHAT ETHNIC HERITAGE?" Of course, im sure they had their stories to tell, and im sure they had some privilege to help them along the way....
Im kind of disappointed that it was a "contest" where the stories of some kids were validated over the stories of other kids (like, the people of color this was supposedly meant for, lmao). I kind of wish it was more of a "sharing of stories" as opposed to a "contest" where some stories are more "valid" than others.
but that aside, Im still proud of my work either way! I still have a lot of work to do. And maybe like walt whitman, there is still much more I can do to change or edit this piece after publication as I grow and change and learn and know more. In the end, im still proud of making it this far at all :). Haha, and to be fair, this is a rather early draft too, so there is always room for growth and change for this piece :).

edit: you've posted your writing here before and i just want to say i think you're really good at it
Thank you<3 :). Just wondering though, what other writings are you referring to?
[–]you_may_die 2 points3 points4 points 3 years ago
I think I was actually thinking of a poem that you posted once that was similar, thematically, and I drunkenly associated it with you as if you'd written it
regardless, I can soberly say that I really liked it and it inspired me to question the way we view recent history through the lens of the privileged more

Ah, okay! Don't worry--you're not the only one who made that association, haha :). Thank you for your thoughts. I'm glad that it helped inspire you.
Thanks you :)<3
