Election Series: "Questions for America" By Amara S. Chaudhry

Questions for America
By Amara S. Chaudhry
Annapolis, MD

what does the word home
mean, if it is no longer
the place where my mother
gave me birth

how many different ways
are there to say the word here
when you ask me
where I am from

why do you ask me
where I am from
more than you ever
ask me how I am

how much allegiance
do I have to pledge
to my country for my country
to start pledging allegiance
to me?
