I was scared but very excited.
It was a new life that awaited me,
I felt alone and desperate,
But I had people who helped me.
I found new family and friends,
But I still miss the ones I left,
I hope one day to meet them again so I can hug them,
But I know that my coming was better,
For a better life and opportunity.
