Chink, Jap, slanted eyes, Asian-American life, foreigner at home.
Asian shame painful, generational patterns, hard to break, sorrow.
Words unsaid at home, a heart yearning to be found, lost in tradition.
Not getting straight A’s, Asian parents kick and scream, kids confused and hurt.
Life scarred by trauma, unconditional self-love, the path to healing.
