Goree Island

The House of Slaves

couldn’t focus on my emotions.
I spent more time looking at other people’s reactions. I saw people crying, faces twisting up in disgust. What I didn’t want to see wasn’t even there. I didn’t want to think about the bodies shackled, being lined up and pushed into small spaces for human consumption as capital. There’s enough daily images of evil that I’m subjected to. I could ignore it, become indifferent, turn off my phone and live in a void. This is what I thought about. Running away…

We’ve been moving so fast, I still haven’t had time to process how I feel.

Until then, I will leave you with these images.
