Once upon a time
there was a girl
named Maria.
She was only 11 years old
when she left for
a journey to America.
She didn’t know what to
not even who she was going with
but then slowly she knew everything.
She was going with her family
to America
for a better future
Well, her journey started
November 9, 1995
She was flying in an airplane
She couldn’t do anything
She didn’t know anything
But two years later
She kind of stood up
She knew what she was doing then
She got smarter
And she is still flying
Not as much as before
But her journey is still on.
