Ode to Chile

South America,
you are teasing me.
You embraced me.
You shook me
down to my core.

But you only gave me 4 months.

I had 4 months
to master a language
not even my mom understands.

4 months
to make new friends
I may never see again.

4 months
to fall in love
with a culture that wasn’t mine…
until today.

I am not Chilean
but I wear their style,
and I speak their language.

I am not Chilean
but Chile is a part of me
now and forever more.
