After 7 years of keeping a certain secret, I was able to tell someone the secret with confidence that I won’t be judged and that they would keep it a secret. I’ve known this person for one month, and I haven’t been able to tell friends I have known for years. Subhanallah, literally feels like weight lifted off my shoulders. I smiled the whole drive home. Point is, don’t lose hope in people, the good ones will find you.

Us immigrant kids
will always be
too Eastern for the West,
and too Western for the East,
our identities will forever remain
in disarray.
