When I Came to Minnesota

By Masud


When I came to Minnesota

I was scared and I did not

No anyone and I did not

Speak English.  I speak African.

A man said would you

Like to have cotton candy

And he gave us $2.oo and

My mom said yes because

We were hungry.  My mom

Speaks African and English.

It was fun to come to Minnesota

And I had a cotton candy

And my mom did too.
