How does one weave
Of their past and present
Into one cohesive unit?
This is the identity crisis
Of a first generation immigrant child.
The need to maintain one’s home culture
While embracing the one we are born into
Sends young adults into a spiral.
We have a choice
To assimilate completely
Or remain separated from society,
Unless we delicately learn
To combine elements of both.
There is no rule book
No diagnostic code
On how best to achieve this balance
But I for one
Wish there was.
Hello Real Unfiltered Fam! This marks the 50th post on the blog, and I truly never imagined we would get this far. The support and love for this blog has surpassed any of my expectations. Thank you for the continuous support, words cannot express how much it means to me. Have a great weekend, and we will meet again on Tuesday for another “Tell All” post!
