Poems about Immigration
Thank you, Dad. Thank you, Mom. Thank you, for giving up your entire life for me.
People say that America is still the land of opportunity Sure, but who’s it for?
I once felt ashamed to be who I am, because I thought being different was not normal.
White walls Question my worth because you can then drain my essence through your fingers
I am the knight that saves the princess, I am the knight that slays the dragon,
To my ancestors, I wished you would have never come To this dreamland, imagineland, make it what you want land.
Once upon a time people lived in peace And everybody's sadness came to cease
They put us in oppression. They drown us in depression. It's nothing but discrimination.
Gracias Mama For my Nicaraguan roots For leaving tu lindo Managua Gracias for giving up your dream and passion as an international dancer
