FWD: Lament the micro aggressions

Some of my colleagues and I received an e-mail from the Diversity and Inclusion committee at my workplace, also my alma mater, titled “FWD: Policy on micro aggressions”, asking for feedback. I read the few pages, and all the micro aggressions my family, my friends, and myself have been subject to (and we too may subject those on others) throughout the years at the hands of others and our own began to resurface. I took to Instagram and asked, “What are some micro aggressions you’ve been subjected to?”, and this poem is a lament — if that’s even the correct word — to that.
