Dear Indian People
This is me holding up a mirror in the middle
Dear White People
Documentary straddles the line between truth and interpretation,
with the not so simple act of asking questions

I delve deep, into a difficult
conversation I was born to,
I sit on the knife’s edge
Of rejection, please,
Don’t disown me
