Poem by Fatuma in Newcomers Program


When I lived in Kenya life was hard, but since

I came to S.A. TX my whole life changed.

I like how the place looks and
seeing new people and
hearing people speak new languages.

In Kenya my life was hard, but now
my life is different.

I have freedom that I didn' have back then
here I can do what I wish to do
back then I couldn't do what I wish to do or
say something that I wanted to say outloud.

And here I could do these stuff without people judging me
telling me not to do
and to do.
