Reality of Asian Representation 

Someone mentioned 

That they thought 

Representation 

For Asians 

Is so hard 

Because as a community 

We will never have enough 

People to represent our 

Social Justice Causes 

It’s so sad because 

That’s true.

It’s all due to 

Model Minority 

Creating so few of the scholars

And activists 

We need to inspire change 

On Bullying

I abhor violence 

I will never 

Intentionally harm 

Another human being 

Because words hurt 

And actions whilst 

Powerful 

Can destroy others 

Inside and out 

I will always 

Apologize when 

I unintentionally 

Cause harm to another 

For I wish to 

Not be judged nor assumed about

In return 

If I don’t speak an

Apology 

However,

You should seriously 

Consider 

The actions 

And the words

You have spoken 

We all 

Have a part 

To heal each other 

And ourselves 

Opinions 

I dislike 

When

Individuals 

Can’t 

Form

Their 

Own 

Opinions 

Please, 

Don’t copy off of me

Figure who you are 

Who you’re meant to be 

We don’t need carbon copies 

We need voices 

Of people who are sure 

Of who they are 

Not what they could be 

Lonely

Being a person 

Of color

Means 

Not having a safe space

To rely upon 

To escape 

The troubles of the world 

And what sucks 

Is that because of others 

You have to 

Give Up that 

One space 

That you fit in 

Because 

The comfort 

That you once 

Found by 

Being with others

Just like you

Was compromised 

Due to other’s 

Narrow minded 

Views

Now that space sits 

Empty 

And you feel 

Lonely 

The community 

Has disbanded
