crisis of identity

Day 29 Prompt: “Identity crisis.”

here
they question my origins
in a land where everyone looks like me
but my tongue has a different mother

there
they question my origins
in the land of my birth we all look different
but theirs is a language I know

between
I am not half a person
but this whole human is split
part who they expect and part who I am

this
is not an explanation
the real crisis
is having to prove my identity

-E.E.
