I am American,⠀

I am Japanese.⠀

I am me.⠀

I have been asked,⠀

"Where are you from?"⠀

I have been told,⠀

"Go back to your own country."⠀

I am American,⠀

I am Japanese,⠀

I am me.⠀

I have been taught,⠀

"We are the human race."⠀

Last time I checked,⠀

a human is not color, nor gender, or country.⠀

I am American,⠀

I am Japanese,⠀

I am me.⠀

A dishwasher,⠀

A taxi cab driver,⠀

A mogul,⠀

A billionaire.⠀

All are human. ⠀

All are part of the same world.⠀

Do you live on Earth?⠀

Last time I checked, so do I.⠀

You are my brother,⠀

I am your sister,⠀

you exist,⠀

and therefore I exist.⠀

I am you.⠀

You are me.⠀

We.⠀

Yes, we are one.
