Strength and Courage

My Journey to the USA

I do not know where

            my strength and courage come from.

 But I do know

            my son makes me stronger.

He refreshes me again and again.

For my son

            I have strength to endure

            and to persevere.

No matter what the risk

            my son gives me strength.


God is great and marvelous.

            I ask God each minute

            To give me strength.

I also believe one must

            fight to get what one wants.

It takes courage and strength.
