The Immigrants

Immigrants, about to step into a place which will be different,

With endless possibilities and much more facilities.

But for some reason people could see them as outcasts because they weren’t safe in their pasts,

They had to leave so they could achieve.

They had to leave!

They could’ve left because of war,

Or they might’ve left because they needed more.

Because of better opportunities.

Health or wealth.

They left their homes,

But still people see them as outcasts.

But we are all immigrants, most of our families are immigrants.

In fact, all of our families are immigrants.

But, it’s getting better because it is OK to be different.
