    Little sister poem. Be woke.❤️ #ajamonet #poem Found these wings on Sunday just strolling through DC. I’m reaching the part of the program where I’ve got so much good in my life but so much fear. When people ask me what my plans are for when my work permit expires, I kind of want to answer with silence and leave it at that. There’s no plan. There’s no plan for when that happens because something needs to pass in Congress before then. The longer the delay, the higher the chance there will be a lapse in a protected status or a  direct jump into being undocumented. There’s no shame in being undocumented. It’s just a really difficult path. Right now my hope is that people with wings, you know, permanent residents/citizens force their representatives at the state or national level to do something. I feel wingless right now. I mean, I’m entering rooms with sad poems in my mouth. I mean, I may or may not be spending a lot of time crying. I mean, I’ve got a job, poetry, bread, my mother, but no future and it stinking hurts. AND I wish I didn’t have to remind people that this is my reality, but I don’t see any new rages at society other than the regular fighters who have been fighting too too too long.💔 Practing my senses.

1,000 miles: step 9

Reflecting on the fact that today didn’t end snow, there are a number of things I am grateful for this year.

This year I became a grown-up… legally. That’s right, big old one decade and eighteen years of age, but saying that Claudia’s a real grown up is stand up comedy material. I have a heart of ice cream and rainbows.


Can you say crazy panda fanatic?

With my 5 year old hat off, thinking hat time next.

Here are just a few things on my mind for today, which I have learned to appreciate greatly this year.

My endless, endless imagination

“My ancestors are plants, don’t you see it?” to

My ancestors are fish?! [Ooh, maybe there’s a mermaid in me.]

Let it snow-attitude

“Oh. It’s snowing again.” to

Dear Santa, please make it snow. I want to build a snow castle. As an incentive, I’ll leave cookies and a glass of milk, too. Love, Claudia.

My growing patience

“Ok, I have to redo this.” to

Wooh! I get to redo this!

Attitude towards tests

“Tests don’t measure my intelligence.” to

Tests don’t measure my intelligence, but they do reflect my mother’s income. And I’ll make every dollar count.

Ability to adapt to change

“Let things be.” to

I can’t change what is, so I’ll change what can be.
