    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 57

I have grammar books and a learning app for the German language. That I’m studying German on my own is something most people don’t know, mostly because most days, I don’t know it myself.

As a bookworm, I know that German storytellers are a precious jewel in the literature world. The language, though, first interested me because of its sound. It involves the speaker’s tongue in particular, curious motions. Most people hear a roughness, but I hear a special kind of gentleness.

It’s Valentine’s Day, so it’s a perfect time to share Phil Collins’s German version of “You’ll be in my Heart.”

there is much gentleness, no doubt:
Du bist so klein, und doch so stark|You are so small, yet so strong.
In meinen Armen halt ich dich schön warm.|My arms will hold you, keep you nice & warm.
Von nun an sind wir unzertrennlich.|From now on, we’re inseparable.
Bin für dich hier, keine Angst.|I will be here, don’t be afraid.
