Tishani Doshi – The Immigrant’s Song

“If you keep still and do not speak, you might hear your whole life fill the world until the wind is the only word.”

“And of all the things we’re dying from tonight, being alive is the strangest, surviving our histories is the saddest. Time leaves the smallest wounds, and your body, a mortal occasion
of timeless law, is all the word I know”
