"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." -Jimi Hendrix

11 You never had your apartment lights on
Your little sister slept in a closet-
There wasn't enough room for all of you.
Your family, like your mother's English
Was broken, uneven, and full of holes
You couldn't always recognize my words
There are still times I lie awake at night
And wonder how you could misunderstand
What I yelled on nights I could not fight back
When our languages say "no" the same way
