I wrote this poem in honor of the Hurricane victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.


They say thatís me
Iím suppose to be an Evacuee
I lost my home in the hurricane, you see
No where to go
No where to sleep
I walk around with nothing to eat
If I break into a store
They will make a criminal out of me
My brother is in Iraq
Fighting for you and me
But in this country
Iím a refugee
Isnít it ironic
When they donít have a need for me
Iím just treated real bad like a nobody
Mixed and shipped with other families
When this dream was over
I prayed and gave thanks
That it wasnít me
But what about the others
Who were not as lucky as me

This hit very hard. At first, I thought you were a Katrina victim, and as you said, it's wonderful you weren't, what about the ones that were? Let us never forget.
