Poem: Letter to Self

By: Oscar Navarro


Dear Oscar,

Since your father is always with you
Appreciation for him you lose
Enjoy every last moment
You won’t be seeing him much.

Leaving Colombia will shatter you
You will have to start from scratch
No friends, no one to eat lunch with
Most important of all no father.

A new home you will find
But it won’t feel the same
Time will go by fast
Don’t give it much thought

There will be sad times
Don’t be scared to cry
Let it all out.
You will find someone to lean on.

However bad times may be,
Wherever you are,
You will find happiness
If you are patient enough
