NPH - An Original Poem
This poem was written originally in English by an NPH university student.
February 2, 2018 - Dominican Republic
Jean Carlos is currently a university student in the NPH Dominican Republic, and grew up in the home. He wrote this poem originally in English, his second language.
More than a structure are for me,
Even if it is a union of houses, clinic and offices
Where friendly and beloved people live,
Who seek to dedicate their life to God and educate society.
N.P.H is my home and I hope to never deny it,
Well, my whole life there, I spent, having fun and sharing,
With unknown people at the beginning,
Although later on in my family they were transformed.
Our Little Brothers and Sisters call it,
Although for my serious, big family,
Well, even if you leave it one day
It is always found in my heart and mind.
Our lives educated and protected,
For people who sacrifice themselves, leaving their family,
Humbly and lovingly care for children.
Friends, I cannot call you,
Well that for me is not allowed,
Because my heart loves them
Since you are my family.
University Student and Pequeño
You may be only one person in the world, but you may be all the world to one child.
