Asian.
An ethnicity or a label?
Strangers just see an olive girl,
But my Friends know.
A reoccurring joke;
Brush it off and laugh...
But then it gets old --
Ashamed.

Redneck.
The one Nobody knows.
The clothes-
I Can't wear because its weird.
At Home just "britches and boots"
But here what are britches?
My true personality --
Hidden.

Two heritages,
Creating two sides of me.
A bad driver or a monster truck driver.
A nerd or an imbecile.
A contradiction like starburst.
But which color; red or yellow?
Conformity will decide.
