What I Want

I want to crush the trash of struggle

that my people go through

for the invisible spirits of joy

to appear as happiness again.

I want to capture the moment when

the devastation of my people blows

away with the monsoon winds that

come from the north.

I want to remember how the

Vietnamese dragon once came,

bringing happiness like a rare toy

to our people.

I want to write about how the

wet rice fields were our only key

to survival and how my people will

bring peace to the world.
