This is my declaration of my independence
From the definition of American
As a beer drinking, gas-guzzling, Iraq-bombing, womanizing
Who is a sexist, racist, anti-immigrant,
Emotion-suppressing aggressive hedonistic
And disengaged human being.
No, I declare my American identity
As an imaginative, hard-working, story-telling
Female entrepreneur, Social-justice-demanding student-sister,
Traveling Egalitarian, Great-granddaughter of immigrants.
Environmentalist, minimalist, conscious-eater.
Mountain-climbing, bike-riding, tofu-eating,
Blue-grass-loving, festival-going, party-animal.
I am Asian-American. Jewish. A wanderer.
Anti-racist, feminist, pro-immigrant, pro-choice
Semi-socialist, Anti-imperialist (anti- Cultural-imperialist)
Pioneering, Protesting, and pro-peace.
I am a Major-leage-baseball-loving
Yoga practicing, smart-phone-addicted
Non-hair-dying, small breasted, liberal and patriotic American.
Proud to fight for the freedoms that define me and the future generations.
