Immigration- Two Voice Poems
Mar 2, 2009
My name is Mira, I'm from Peru. My name is lupita. I'm from Mexico. I am an immigrant. My father died leaving us in poverty. We needed money. The father of my children went to America in search of money. I crossed the border to America. My journey was long and hard. My journey was short and luxurious. I have family here, but I left the closest behind. I took my family with me. I have a better paying job. I'm a teacher at the school molding minds like. I work in the field, pulling vegetables from the earth. I try to keep an atmosphere that honors my family's heritage. I still wear a brakes to represent my Mexican culture. I still practice my own religion. But I am learning English. I will stay here because I am a citizen. I will soon go back to Mexico. I live in America.
