Us immigrant kids
will always be
too Eastern for the West,
and too Western for the East,
our identities will forever remain
Stop calling ISIS the Islamic State.
You guys will go upon lengths and jump hoops to deny that the KKK are a Christian influenced group but won’t blink to say Muslim and terrorist in the same sentence.
The language you use matters.
The world will speak of you.
It will say ‘she used to walk upon me humbly and beautifully’.
Nature will speak of you.
It will say ‘all the flowers longed to have her scent’
The moon will speak of you.
It will say ‘I followed her on earth, I climbed high in the sky to witness the beauty that she withheld, the beauty that had driven many stars to implode’
And I too, will speak of you.
