"I remember ..." - FAMM

“I remember …”

I remember…
the first and only time
of my encounter
with the American Justice system.

I remember…
with a vivid memory
how everything
started falling apart.

I remember…
how they betrayed me
and set me up
for failure.

I remember…
how suffering and sadness
came to stay with me
by my side.

But above all…

I remember…
that my Lord and my God
was always there with me
to guide my life.
