I’m scared, shy, alone and lost.
Chicago is a big place.
Frozen fear shown in my eyes,
My body begins to shake.

My fearful voice, weak- shaky,
I decide to advocate.
I ask for directions home.
Relief, my path now begins.

As my journey continues,
My mental mind becomes calm.
Relaxing though I’m shaking,
Shaking though I’m connecting.

There’s Independence Island,
Finally, my path is chosen.
It’s now; I have found my voice,
I have found my way home.
