Warm summer saturdays were his favorite
back home with people he loves.
On the beach listening to the sound of the ocean,
a memory of his childhood each wave brings back.
On the streets playing soccer with his friends,
not having a care in the world.
Going to school and studying hard,
never to realize his hard work will bring him far.
Memories of being young and determined,
long nights of hard work, being told he will never make it.
Leaving home to chase his dreams,
in another world that offered it all,
His American Dream.
