My name is Pedro Poveda, I’m a college student with too many interests to count.I was fortunate enough to earn a full tuition paid scholarship in the ninth grade that is making my higher education dreams possible.
On the topic of dreams, at one point I was pinning all my hopes on the passing of the Dream Act. This was a bill that would give undocumented students (such as myself at the time) a chance to naturalize after completing a college curriculum or serving in the military.
I lucked out, however, and managed to naturalize myself through other methods. Now my goal is to prove that the American Dream is indeed alive by devoting all my energy towards becoming a computer programmer.
You will find herein a collection of poems from my adolescence. In here I catalog the pain and confusion that I experienced in those years as I found poetry to be an outlet.
I publish this with the intention of showing that there is always a way out, no matter how bleak the circumstances.
