A Poem: A Shadow Factory

when I was twelve, my mother handed me a book

inscribed with the words “My Family”

in it were the magnificent tales of my ancestors

who had come to America, the land of dreams

with seemingly nothing to their name but

a ragged pair of shoes and a shiny purse of hope

clutched onto their rounded backs

full of dreams and aspirations that they wished

would translate into reality

they didn’t know

that this would be forcefully stripped away within a matter of years

and that their hopes of cultural preservation would rush into the vast Mississippi rivers of America

only to be hindered by the mile-high barriers of assimilation

until they’re compelled to forget their culture entirely

and name their children American names

instead of ones from their mother countries

and forget the family recipes they swore to always remember

and lose memory of the language that they vowed to forever cherish

until nothing is left but a shadow

of the courageous person they used to be

of the pride and culture they used to hold so dearly

and so the day will come where their children will grow up 

not knowing where they came from or who they are

and they will name their children American names

because they know no other way

and they will sob over the recipes that their mother failed to teach them

and they will forget that there was a language to begin with

that wasn’t American English

and there were people before them

that weren’t American

because they have been processed through the monotonous factory of the United States

where nothing remains but the shadows of those who lived before

who are now miserably roaming the country in agony

of the culture and memories they and their children had long forgotten

 Darkness camouflages harassment of a deity, abductions, human trafficking, illegal trades, domestic violence and many more felonious sins oblivious to the social equivalent to the shadow that disappears under the daring dark sky without care. We have all mistaken the proverb ‘Ignorance is bliss’ in being fallacious, instead, we use it as a safety cage to pry away from vicious situations taking place. Regardless of being a male or female, wealthy or poor; none are saved from the wrath of the evil – neither under the shining sun nor under the dark starry night. I reckon “Every sin is shadowed when darkness takes over.”
