Tell me (For Shanelle)

Tell me I am too English to speak fluent Arabic,

or this tongue of mine is confused of it's identity.

You tell me, that this body of mine is fragile;

even though I carry it whole every day.

Tell me,

Tell me my fingers will forget how to write and then I won't have anything going for me, 

Tell me I am not Arab enough to be human,

Not human enough to be an Arab.

Tell me.

Go on, you know better than me...
