My poem is bout my grandfathers determination to immigrate to this country for opportunities for himself, his children and for future generations.

A Dream

By: Kiara Herrera

Determination and perseverance,

Is what got me here.

A goal and A dream

Achieved the opportunity of a lifetime.

My grandfather,

A wise and determined soul

Is who got me here.

Migrating to this country was a scary thing

But he did it anyways

To open doors

And to have more opportunities

For himself,

His children,

And for future generations
