"My shadow is not me"
(by Judit Mentado Sánchez)
My shadow is not me.
Then, why does it move along with my body?
Perhaps it is not a part of me either.
Maybe there is no me anymore.
What really makes me what I am, If all of my parts can be detached and sold in pieces?
Am I even a woman? What is a woman?
My kids are dying to see me;
I am (just) dying.
I am burned alive till I see my own bones protruding as a rotten tree branch.
My veins melt inside my arm, from the first time they inject me with the deadliest of chemicals;
My skin is thin and scorched over a rash as red as the blood I lack.
When the moment comes, I must be still;
the slightest movement can be fatal.
But love was telling me that that was what I needed to do, to fight.
For whatever dares to come next, take my breast as a warning sign.
I feel the urge to live.
