Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President,

You turned my world around

and upside down,

but I do not hate you.

 

You pulled me away from

all I loved,

but I do not hate you.

 

You tried to make me register

because of my religion

but I do not hate you.

 

You insult me to my face

every day,

but I do not hate you.

 

You try to tell me that 

I do not belong in this country

of "true Americans"

but I do not hate you.

 

You tell me that I do not 

deserve to be here,

because I could hurt 

and kill,

and still I do not hate you.

 

because I know what love is.

love is my friends,

my family,

my country,

my world.

 

I have learned to love.

And I am asking you,

Please. Learn to love.

 

Because the planet

will not heal itself.

 

Equality will not

appear out of thin air.

 

Because the Dreamers

deserve a home here.

 

Because I have rights

that apparently are not

unailianable.

 

So I am asking you,

Please. Learn to love.
