Sample text

I have been refused an opportunity to grow up in my family. On other hand, I have been given a new opportunity to focus all my energies on growing up in my second language. After my stroke and subsequent aphasia, I have developed an identity that is much more independent of my family. A year and a half after the stroke, my wife and I separated. Someone with disability from Sikh families from Panjab is well looked after in terms of security and nurture, but for me it’s too claustrophobic, limiting choice and challenge.

I look at it and see what it could be: a bit of this and a bit of that, it’s quite appropriate what it is. So there are always connections of thoughts, meanings, sounds and bits of orthography but until you have said aloud some of the sounds or have the letters in front of you, you don’t know what all the connections are. Yes, I can only suss it out later. Yesterday I was trying to write a poem. It’s called ‘Words to toast’, no, ‘Words to taste in my London garden’. When I was in my garden, I been thinking how I like golden rod, lemon balm, mock orange, all taste.

So I chose to be independent and moved to inner city Bradford, where it would be easier to access services I needed. However I am still struggling to find a voice within those two distinct parts of my family. I feel that as a child, I was ‘spoken for’ often, whether in Panjabi or in English. My role has always been to listen and perhaps nurture members of my family. Aphasia has locked me into this role. I do not have much of a voice now in the Panjabi family community. I am protected by them, but silent.
