A poem, a rant, I dunno but I wanted to share this

I’ve been having issues expressing my feelings during the last few weeks with everything going on. I’ve lost friends, had death threats, been threatened and I’m tired. I started writing as I’m studying for midterms as a form of getting feelings out. I don’t know if it’s a rant or a poem or some mix but I just want people to see it. I just hope it resonates with somebody because fuck is it hard to be Jewish right now.

I am the Jew that will not pass your litmus test. I am the Jew that will not make you feel comfortable about your antisemitism no matter how casual. I am the Jew that will not fight with you if you turn your back during mine. I am the Jew who will not give unconditional support when your support demands that I meet impossible conditions. I am the Jew who will not turn my back on my people. I am the Jew that will not make you comfortable. I am the Jew that will not be silenced. I am the Jew you will not love. I am the Jew you don’t think is good.

I am the Jew who grew up silent. I am the Jew who grew up tolerant. I am the Jew who grew up to be vocal. I am the Jew who grew up to stand up. I am the Jew who grew up to question. I am the Jew who grew up to argue. I am the Jew who grew up to be hated.

I am the Jew who will live. I am the Jew who will love. I am the Jew who will persevere. I am the Jew you will remember.
