Rupi Kaur's poem celebrating the accents of your immigrant parents rings many truths. Listen to the whole thing to appreciate the message.

Our favourite verse:

"So how dare you mock your mother
when she opens her mouth and broken english spills out
her accent is thick like honey
hold it with your life
it's the only thing she has left from home
don't you stomp on that richness
instead hang it up on the walls of museums next to
Dali and Van Gogh"
