Immigrant from heaven

Traveling across the world, over an ocean

From east to west, village to town

Her world turned upside down

Converting values and beliefs, translating the language

With a deep connection to her roots

Dig a hole and she’ll be right back from where she came from

Carrying her luggage full of love and worry

Bringing nothing but a burden

It’s clinging on top of her shoulders

Weighing her down

Not a trace of selfish thoughts

With her head held up high

Facing whatever the future has in store for her

Leaving everything behind

For a better life

It’s a clean slate, a fresh start, a new beginning

In the greater good of her children

Struggling to get a taste of the American Dream
