To Be Happy - Poem by Cathy Thi Tai Nguyen

My root is tropical
My race is oriental
My skin is brown
My spirit is free as a gentle breeze
I was born just to be me
It's the different in color one may see
In our heart one feeling only
Making everyone at ease
Why fighting instead of loving
This World is strange enough
At this century
It is time to reconcile
With every nation
In any aspect
Serving God and your family
with the best of your ability
And say to yourself
Because the principal of life
Is to be happy.
