Poems about Immigration
His skin looks old, brown, and wrinkled; scarred by the Mexican Sun; His wrinkles are a chronicle of his life-long Wisdom.
As my parents strived for a better life they walked a far distance, The United States wasn’t as close as it seemed,
My daddy built an empire with his tender, 18-year-old hands as he kneaded the pizza dough for $5 an hour
Every morning Dad comes home Exhausted and shattered by his work The money wouldn’t be asked more.
Our intentions are to find a better Life. We come to this country to work that's all.
-With “New Colossus” (1883) – Emma Lazarus-
In the shadows I stand, Waiting for the day when I am no longer called illegal Am I from outer space?

This injustice, it isn't right. We are all human, but they all wanna fight.
When I was younger, I read a series called the American Girl Diaries They were books about girls with red hair and freckles
