Our Journey: 8 Days in a House

On our journey from home to here

We stayed

8 days

In a house.

Locked up.

They gave us breakfast and lunch.

20 people

Including children.

We suffered much.

I had no money.

My son cried.

He did not want

To

Be

There.

We left in a truck.

We spent 30 hours

In

The

Trailer.

We were desperate.

We could no breathe.

We arrived at Reynosa.

We

Waited

Three Days.

They took us to the River.

El Salvador is my home.

Mariposa
The mariposa (butterfly) is a powerful symbol of freedom for refugees seeking asylum.
