if you try to put fear into me

 

if you try to put fear into me,

you will fail.

for the blood that flows

within the essence of my soul

is that of my parents,

who left their childhood

their kinship

their home,

to come to a foreign land

where, to this day,

they are still deemed the Other;

all

for their children,

who were yet to be born
