Measure of a man.

there were dreams
but like college loans
they, too, got deferred

there were hopes
but they had to be adjusted
quarterly for inflation
and the rising price of oil

there were prayers
but they were filed alphabetically
in large cardboard boxes
marked answered and unanswered
then put away in storage

Красивые стихи!

Кстати, я тоже иммигрант, только я из Беларуси и живу в Канаде.
