A Mother’s (Day) Dream for Three Daughters

Written by an Immigrant Mother Seeking Asylum (while incarcerated in family detention)

My hopes and dreams are

             for my three daughters…

I want them to be safe.

I want them to be happy.

I want them to be with persons who care for them…

            …who respect them

            …who love them

            …always.

I want my daughters to be able to study.

I do not want much for me…

            …I prefer that mine would be

            …for my daughters.

I only ask for my daughters to have freedom…

            …to play

            …to study

            …to leave this place.

I do not want my daughters to be locked up.

I want them to be free…

            …to come and go

            …to know many places

            …to be free.

I want my daughters to be happy.
