I am from old memories

from the Nintendo DSi to a Windows 10 Desktop

I am from a cold stone house

with a mini front-yard garden

I am from two old cell phones

from my mother’s and my father’s

I am from hard work and humiliation

and from determination

from experience

I am from an old

I am from a survivor and an immigrant

from noodles to rice

from a camp

and from escaping from internal genocide

A marked wall

I am from those moments  

I am from old memories
