Sometimes I fear I cannot bear

The lonliness of life’s despair

I see the children on the street

Their vacant eyes dimmed by defeat.

Compared to those of long ago

When ambition was clear to show

With spunk and guts they vanquished fear

While spirits channeled strength and cheer.

They did not cower in some cave

But learned how proper folk behave

They mimicked those who came before

They worked and saved and worked some more.

They learned the language, customs too

Embraced the challenges they knew

And in the end their courage won

Look now to see how far they’ve come !
