A Day Without Immigrants
(I wrote this Feb 14th)

Today is a day without immigrants

Yet I still came to school

My mother was up at 6 am

My dad drove me to school at 8

A day without immigrants

It should be staggering

we can’t seem to stop working

Waiters,

Nurses,

Housewives,

Mechanics,

Construction Workers,

Students …

I feel unsupportive to my kind

I’m benefiting the others.

They will never know the difference

Will they ever feel the absence?
