“So, here you are
too foreign for home
too foreign for here.
Never enough for both.”
I left a part of me in Islamabad, Pakistan. I was born and raised in Pakistan and moved to the U.S (California) about 10 years ago. I went to school in Monterey, California and got married 4 years ago. I would go back to Pakistan every year during the first few years but now its getting more and more difficult to go back regularly.
I miss my homeland so much! I love my Pakistan! I get to speak my native language, Urdu, and I get to wear shalwar kamiz everyday. I miss being able to get around easily and knowing how to get things done without relying on others. You can stop your car in the middle of the street to ask for directions and someone will always help you. People are so welcoming - they go above and beyond to take care of you. This time I was a tour guide for my husband and daughter and I loved every moment of it!
I pray for my Pakistan. I pray that it becomes free of corruption, poverty, pollution & disease! Ameen!
