I live in this world ruled by race,

But I see tears of my people,

Tears of the Hmong,

The tears of the young crying for their moms.

The discrimination for the sad stories our parents told us about the Vietnam War,

Being the blame why the U.S. lost the War.

Being mistaken everywhere we go,

Being call Chinese,

Being call chink,

It hurts my heart and my soul.


Maybe one day the Hmong people will find hope.

Until then our people will face this discrimination.

  1. If you have the luck to see this slam poetry performed at the Ritz Theater, you can feel the power, and sorrow, but all with great dignity. Watch for the video performance, you would agree with me 200%!
