 ABOUT
CONNIE C 

I am blessed in so many ways. I have good health, a wonderful family, and time to finally pursue some interests, one of them being writing, a passion that I've had for as long as I can remember.

Seeking a better life
"Land of Opportunity?" by Connie C
They've come to seek a better life,
one free of what has brought them strife.
This land of opportunity
is where they want their family.

With children, ages two and four,
they find no welcome at the door.
"Go back," they're told, "where you belong.
Don't play on us with your sad song."

They've trudged for miles on end, but now
it's time to face the truth somehow.
No longer does the U.S. shine
with greetings at our borderline.

Author Notes
My heart breaks for those who seek a better life for their families but must face so many obstacles when trying to come to the U.S.
Thank you for reading.
