I made peace with the shadows
And ceased war with the lights
So now i stand
The brown child
Of an inter-racial marriage

a brillaint piece. Amazing. The depiction of light and darkness in the emergence of the "hybrids" (Homi K. Bhabha), a brillaint deconstruction of racism (hierarchy of races) in the Derridian line through the birth of the inter-racial child. Us/Me and the Other are now unified.
But I hope this child remain stationary and does not inherit the genetical defects of the parents at perpetual war. A masterpiece.
