This poem was originally published in Marrow - a collection of poetry and prose by Sutra.
Sutra is a Ghanaian-British voice of power, whose creative work is centred on an ethos of community, vulnerability and healing. From an early age, Sutra has been passionate about the art of storytelling as an act of individual and collective resistance. Sutra released her first body of work as a musician and a writer in 2015.
Entitled 'The Art of Being,' the mixtape was released on Soundcloud to rave reviews, and picked up a day later by BBC Wales. Its lead track, Where You Are, was played on the Adam Walton Show. In March 2017, Sutra collaborated with other creatives to co-direct and release her first music film, Waves/The Water, which has since been screened in London, Tokyo, and Yaoundé.
