I Remember When

I remember when I left my friends.
I remember when I first came to America.
I remember when I first came to School #14.
I remember when I met my fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Perez.
I remember when I got new friends.
I remember when I went to the zoo.

(Editorial commentary: I am so happy that Ahmed Al used the format that I suggested to write this poem. My sense is that he is adjusting well to being in America. Some of us are lucky enough to be born here, others immigrate.)
