I WILL CARRY THIS FOR YOU
I WILL CARRY THIS FOR YOU2019 | digital illustrationI am lucky to have encountered many version of The Story of how a person came “here.” None has been so hard to hear as my own mother’s. I think anybody whose family has been shaped by immigration in some way knows what I’m talking about: the first time your parent(s) tell you why they left their homeland to come here. And how. Too often, the story is traumatic. If it’s your mom’s story, too often there’s some pinché cabron behind it. After the Story, the dynamic between Parent and Child changes: their fate is now linked to yours and their trauma—like it or not—latches onto yours, too. It is a difficult thing your parents ask of you, to bear witness to their pain and then expect you to keep that in mind the next time they hurt you. (This exactly where the colony rests at night. Inside your own home. At your family table. On top of your mother’s bed. Your bed as well.) Once The Story is told, childhood fades behind you. Your words will fail you, but that’s okay. In those moments, listening is what you give. You summon all your 10 or 12 or 15 or 18 years and you give them what you can: a face that does not flinch, a hand stretched across a table saying “I will carry this for you.”
