from a home that is no longer mine
to be brought to a country
that openly hates my kind
raised in a city that we have claimed
yet outside these walls, i am still afraid
afraid to speak Spanish, to be proud
told that i shouldn't speak so loud
that they will then know i am not one of them
if i do not belong here or there
please tell me where?
Sabrina Caridad was born in Cuba. Her family brought her to the U.S. at the age of 3. She grew up in Miami around people from the same community. She is keenly aware of the cultural divide that exists outside of the city and struggles with the prejudice against her community and underlying inequality.
