Feeling - Poem by Cathy Thi Tai Nguyen

We were called the boat people
Some think we are the trouble
Simply because we need to resettle
After so many lost in battles.

We see reason for all rejects
Cause of the inflation affects
Prepare ourselves for goodness sake
Communist influences are right next.

We ask you please to be at ease
Watching us grow in the community
One bad apple doesn't spoil the whole tree
Exchange our LOVE for remedy.

We did go through so many shocks
Lost almost our entire stocks
Only COURAGE and PRIDE were left
Work our way up as new folks.

Adjusting old and new cultures
Just for a better future
We need to learn from each other
Sing a happy song TOGETHER.

We are children of God as you all
Only different in color people call
We try to cope for we do hope
INDEPENDENCE, LIBERTY and JUSTICE for all.
