I am an Immigrant

He carried a toolbox
Leaving the ship
Carpenter
Tradesman
Irish brogue
Hardened hands
Big Heart
My Father
Opportunity in America
Welcoming Union
One job then the next
Day after Day
Building a life, a foundation
Soon another ship
My Mother and I arrive
A new land
He toiled
Building homes
Providing shelter
Paving the way to University
A better life for a son
I’ve been blessed
67 years later
I am the American dream
But today as I survey the scene
DACA denied
Immigrants denied
History denied
Lies not Facts
White House Racist
Vile underbelly
America unable
America Afraid
America the Beautiful
The Golden Rule
Rise up we must
Brothers all
To win the fight
I am an immigran
So must do right
