I feel like, I have become two people
One has given up the other
Is trying to survive,
But both of us are in a cage an
but a cage nonetheless.
Everyday I feel like I am not alive,
Just living to breath, every day is a cycle of the same.
I walk through life with no purpose or direction.
I am empty. I have such a heavy burden, which I carry.
I always said to care was the hardest thing to do,
I find myself no longer caring. Why should I?
If my future is so uncertain. I see the students around me and
see what they will do in the upcoming year,
I see it but don’t recognize it. My life has become transparent.
This life is neither a dream nor a nightmare.
This mist that follows me has blocked my perception
Of what I should and could do but that is not it all the way.
Now I lack the motivation to continue.
To continue means fighting but I am tired.
I have worked hard with what’s seems to be no reward.
I feel sometimes that the American dream has become an immigrant’s
by Elioth Gomez. He has been accepted to CSU San francisco, San Jose, UC Davis and UC Santa Barbara, waiting for UC LA and Berkeley. He has worked hard but he might not be able attend the school he want to. Every day tries to stay optimistic but I can not continue The reality is that Elioth will be unable to finance his college education and I lie to himself that it doesn’t matter where he goes to school next year, but in actuality, it matters alot to him.
