August was the month I left my home town,
So upset I was, yet so excited,
Reality hit home, I would break down,
But I knew soon, we'd be reunited.
With my close family of course, who else?
They have been there for me my entire life,
In America i'd be by myself,
I began to find myself in a strife.
Angel on the left, Devil on the right,
I started to think this was the right choice,
Alls I knew, my future here could be bright,
I just prayed for God's guidance, his wise voice.
A year ago today I left for good,
A year all alone, I have now withstood.
