Me At The Same Time

by E.E.

 

I am romantic and practical at the same time.

I wonder why the Home Office discriminates,

I hear the sound of birds signing free,

I see a park with a pond and a waterfall,

I want to have status and be free.

I am romantic and practical at the same time.

 

I pretend I am strong and happy,

But I feel sad and detained,

I touch jasmine and violet,

I worry about my future and my family,

I cry, oh I cry, about feeling disbelieved and discriminated against.

I am romantic and practical at the same time.

 

I understand that I will win. The truth always wins.

I say the light will always overcome the dark,

I dream of freedom and meeting my family,

I try to fight and fight and keep fighting for my rights and freedom,

I hope we will all have equality and be free.

I am romantic and practical at the same time.
