A Not-So-American American

Written By: Colette Byun

A Not-So-American American

You smile and laugh

Eyes filled with delight

While we watch from too close

But stay silent in fright.

And while we laugh along

And act with fear

You don’t see that

You are the reason

We won’t come too near.

You call us slurs

And mock our design

But when it comes to your fashion,

We’re just a new trend,

Something nice for the eye.

So why do you ridicule us?

While we’ve helped you

Through and through?

You’re only making yourselves look

Like those who mock

Won’t be missed by

Those who rue.
