When I am asleep,
i am brought on missions,
foreign and far away.
I awake exhausted and uneasy,
with pieces of the night before.
Haunting my waking mind,
Sometimes it feels like I’m just counting moons,
and watching myself from worlds away.
There’s something devilishly charming,
about going mad.
“What is it exactly you want out of this life?”
You say, to no one in particular.
finally waking up.
And while I’m probably sinning,
burning my shame,
there’s nothing else that seems to satiate this kind of hunger.

WUSA recognizes that much of the work we do happens on the traditional territory of the neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. The land we work on is covered by the Between the Lakes Treaty, No. 3 (1792), and this region is still home to First Nation, Inuit, and Metis peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work, play and live on this land and acknowledge that it is our collective responsibility to make our community and world a better place for all people. We acknowledge that educational institutions have not been a safe space for Indigenous students in the past and we continue to work to ensure that this is no longer the case. The work towards truth and reconciliation is ongoing, please do your part and take time to learn more: TRC 94 Calls to Action | MMIWG Calls to Justice Report | Native-Land.ca | Student Supports & Clubs
