Immigrant Women
She most likely had no say
In making the decision to migrate
Thousands of miles away
From her siblings, parents and friends
Used to walking two steps behind
She was expected to tag along
So she did!
The new climate
Free from suffocation
Once given the opportunities,
She put her best foot forward
Using her strongest asset
So now, she’s able to walk
Two steps ahead
Migration to thousands of miles
Doesn’t deserve as much credit
As covering those four steps
Oh! but now
She must struggle
To take two steps back
In order to remain in line
