Hello again Poetry Wednesday readers! Today today, I will be sharing a poem that I came upon called “The Asians Dying” by W.S. Merwin.
In this poem it talks about a war, not just any war but the Vietnam War (Secret War). Though I just found out of this poem, it has now become by far one of my favorite poems to read. It’s replatable to those who have had family gone through this trouble to get us here to have a better life. Learning about my history, learning about how my family got to where we are, though we are not successful like many, we still make a living and get by.
