Why do I feel so distant
from a culture I’m supposed to call my own?

Why do its colors, tastes, sounds, and smells get lost on me?

A familiar foreign entity
Let me know who I am supposed to be.

A perfect Indian daughter?
I am not her.

Maybe I was supposed to be?
but my mother tongue is twisted
and on my ears the sound is foreign
And the clothes leave me constricted.

Culture?
I still don’t know what you mean to me.
