I presented this poem at the 2018 ISTE Conference during my TED Ed talk:
Neither here nor there
Neither blind nor sighted
I see you, but not all of you
You see me, but not all of me
Ni aquí, ni allá (Neither here nor there)
The islands, the city, the country
Español, Spanglish, English
Y hoy, ¿quién soy? (And today, who am I?)
Hay, ¿quién sabe? (Well, who knows?)
So I learn to live in between
In and out of the shadows
And as the light turns to dark
And the darkness comes to life
I’ve learned to just dance
Just dance in those shadows
