I thought I could hide and nobody would find my identity but those that “hate” have a way to know. It doesn’t matter how much you try and “fit in” your true “ethnic heritage” will be discovered once someone looks a bit deeper. It’s not that I was “embarrassed” to be that identity (well maybe a little) but I just wanted to strike a whole new path from my ancestors so I ate from different plates and openly mocked them. Now I need their help to escape but they have left before me or have been swept away. Maybe if I and others stood united with them in the past I wouldn’t have to hide away today.
