Wrought With Gold

Listen, dear readers, there once was a story,

Filled with magic and marvels and whimsy and wonder,

One of trials and hardships, of success and glory.

A boy with a dream that crackled like thunder

And filled him with energy that helped him thrive,

But he had to hide it, lest it be torn asunder.

His parents, Khmer immigrants, restarted their lives.

They learned a new tongue in a foreign land

And worked to their bones just to survive.
