you are inescapable, unavoidable

I see you, I breathe you
I feel nauseous from the taste of you

you are everywhere I go
every person I’ve spoken to
every face I’ve seen
even my own

you are every culture I’ve discovered
every identity I’ve known
every space I’ve entered
you are just everywhere

just everywhere
inescapable, unavoidable

every time I think I can escape you
I am proven wrong
every. single. time.

do you smile with satisfaction because
of your double-edged swords?

even spaces that claim to hate you are not free from you

to be free from you is not merely
about certain religious beliefs
or certain cultural norms
or certain political parties
or certain other things
to be free from you is about everything
about everyone

how can we be free from you when we’ve never had the freedom to choose?
and when we will always be damned, regardless what we do?
