18. Esther P.'s Heritage Poem

My Heritage
Esther P.

My family speaks Korean like the other Koreans do.
We wear long dresses and shirts and pants like we do now.
We celebrate all seasons just as you do,
but we don’t celebrate Halloween like some people do;
we like to “trick or treat” whenever we want to do like others do in Halloween.
We believe in God to save us like others ask to do,
but we love God with all our hearts just as Jesus does.
We mostly lived in Seoul where my dad lived like most of my Korean friends.
I didn’t, but most of my family suffered from Japan who started war.
We believe in God and we still live like other people do.
We still live in God’s presence who helps us do his word.
