I find richness
In the mixture
In what others disdain
Young people lost
Between two cultures
Told by both sides
They don’t fit in
Laugh at their accents
At their conjugations
Two words for one thing
For another, none
To be bilingual
Spurs some to excel
While others fall behind
What is their mother tongue?

(2014)
