Fear of loss

Fear of separation.

Fear of our country.

Fear of my own surroundings.


Tell me, should I have this feeling?

I was born here, but my blood wasn't.

Land of the free? No.

Land of the feared.


My parent's chances of living the dream?

I will fight for them.

My sister's future career?

I will fight for her.


Who knows what will happen next?

Tell me, will they (my parents) be able to see me grow?

What about my younger brother? A future diesel mechanic.

Tell me, will I be able to protect my family?


First US Born

Second Born

Citizen of the US

Now with the fear of losing those who never gave up on me.
