Day 27 – A problem you’ve had

I honestly can’t think of any problems as of late, but in the past my biggest problem was being an immigrant and not having any papers.

I found out in 12th grade when I went to get my drivers license but found out I had no social. It was rough after that. I lost scholarships and free opportunities to travel abroad.

I’ve half resolved the issue. I have a work permit now, which means I got my drivers license and I can travel to a certain extent.

It Just May Be…Just Maybe

Sometimes I feel like I’m on cloud nine

Unfortunate enough to be shot down

Multiple times over the years

If only life were fair

Then I wouldn’t be here


Not knowing what to do

Asking myself

“How could this happen to you?”

I always put my best foot forward

Must mean everyone’s behind me

And they cannot see

The length of my stride

All they see is the foot left behind

I’m done talking

Done walking

Into situations that have little favor

I need to stop this destructive behavior

Before I’m pushed over the edge

Wedged between a rock and a hard place

Fighting logic with love

What was I thinking of?

There was no way I could win…

Not in this world we live in

Or it just may be

That just maybe

The problem resides…

In me…
