Greatest Thanks

I had been excited

Because of my first experience

That was so amazing and fantastic

Because of traveling by plane for my first time


I had gotten a feeling

How lucky I am


But I felt sad on one side

Because of leaving my home country


Anyway, I accepted the challenges

To design my new life


And I have arrived in a world-famous city

That is called New York


Even the pilot said warmly “welcome” I heard

But I felt so cold


The difficult experience I met

That was the language


But I have gotten the helping hand during my depression

That was the Andrew Romay New Immigrant Center that helped me a lot


Now I feel comforted

Because of getting confident


There is one word I would like to say:

Thank you so much


Andrew Romay

I wish you

Live for a hundred years!
