I am not African.
Africa is in me, but I cannot return.
I am not Taína.
Taíno is in me, but there is no way back.
I am not European.
Europe lives in me, but I have no home there.
I am new.
History made me.
My first language was Spanglish.
I was born at the crossroads
and I am whole. Aurora Levins Morales
