I remember that specific day, just like it was yesterday, all those sights, sounds and smells, Cannot replace any other day. Let me tell you how I came, And how I was not the same. I remember all the sad good-byes, As I left from India on my flight, All the happiness and the joy, Just vanished behind me like a toy. As soon as I stepped off the plane, I saw a shop with a name so insane. "Pizza Hut" what kind of name is that, In India we ate food on a family mat. Hmm I guess I'll go try it out, And see how much it is about. Yuck, too chewy just like rubber, So I dropped it on the plate just like flubber. Many hard years and struggles later, I sit with a platter, of all the pizza you can eat, with a new life and a new treat!
A New Country by Tarini Gupta
Red, white and blue soaring in the sky all I could think dream or even talk about was the new land. The wonders and opportunities that awaited us
I got off the ship the country people rules so foreign as I got home from the ship I felt home sick family friends EVERYTHING left behind A new start at first it felt like a box of markers was shut so there was no room for me But the people in America had their arms wide open for me By the end of it I thought all the markers moved closers TOGETHER to make room for ME

Hullendo de la violencía deje a mi México amado, y llege a este gran país como cualquier refugiado.
Añovando a mi pueblo, la calidez de su gente, su cultura, su costumbre, todo es tan diferente.
Pero encontre gente buena, trabajadora y luchona, no los indeseables, como cualquier tarado pregona.
Este es un gran país, que abarca muchas naciones, muchas razas, colores y tradiciones trabajan mano, con mano, para poder lograr el gran sueño americano.
Running from the violence I left my dearest Mexico, And got here to this great country Like many other refugees.
Remembering my town, And the gentle people, the culture, the customs, everything is so different.
But I found the people hard working and determined, Not the undesirables Like any hypocrite yells.
This great country that encompasses many nations, Many races, colors, and traditions, working hand-in-hand, to accomplish the American dream.
