Manjioca: Uma Brasilian Feminista…

“I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood.” ~Audre Lorde~

What does it mean to journey from a sperm to an egg using your free agency before “life” is created?

being “unconsciously” subconscious, cognizant of your personal journey,

and then here you are, a breed of breeds, branded with a specific type of


Representing whats already been presented,

struggling for “self-authenticity”

colonizing the self, sacrificing to learn

to yearn to earn your

piece of “nationality” and then…

Displaced, disgraced, misplaced

you find yourself..

no longer a transformation of life, but in

between life and death,

struggling to survive, create and re-energize!

Continuously working, mislabeled

words misunderstood, finding the journey

yearning for company
