Money, power, fame, Idols we worship like gods, Meaningless chasing.
I am a mistake, flawed, defective, inner shame, beliefs about self.
  At home, loyalty, Elsewhere taught independence, Asian tug-of-war.
No!  Where are you really from? Asians in America, forever foreign?
Duty and honor, never bring shame upon us, ancestors watching.
