Am I the only one in disbelief that 2019 is almost over 😭 Started work today on my publishing plan for 2020 (I love StoryOrigins’ new word count tracker!) and I realized just how many stories I have to tell. Here’s to storytelling and the publishing journey! 🍺

my british asian identity has often lead me to awkward encounters and run-ins with more cultured, “from-back-home” relatives, when it comes to practicing traditional Asian customs. whether it be in my mannerisms, to that of my approach to food - being of british asian heritage has ultimately created a divide in what I view as two separate identities. ⠀
this poem is particularly engaged in distinguishing these metaphorical identities, as represented by the dual “coconut”: white on the inside, brown on the out. in an attempt to submerge from this conflict of identity, one could interpret this as a calling to find one’s true identity and self, beyond the boundaries of colonialism and the whitewashing of a south asian identity in britain. i play on the popular selection game “coconut crack” to motivate a playful, yet indecisive tone that runs consistently throughout the poem. .⠀
