A new poem for a new year. We come from so many places, so many peoples.

Where I’m From

By Chau Vo Thuy

I am from Vietnam,

small country looks like an S shape.

I am from Ho Chi Minh,

the city has only hot and rainy seasons.

I am from Quang Ngai,

in the central part of Vietnam.

The place is full of hurricane and floods every year.

Where my people endure difficult lives.

But they always look ahead,

and smiles are always on their faces.

Never give up, never run away.

Love and proud of where I come from.

Because I’m Vietnamese.
