My Greatest Love

My Greatest Love

I have much to fear.

I cannot return to my country.

I fear for

            My

                        Greatest

                                    Love

                                                My Daughter.

 She and I have suffered much.

The gangs want to

            Violate

                        And

                                    Kill

                                                My Daughter.

I asked God to help us…

            …to grant us asylum.

I do not want to be

            …abused

                        …mistreated

                                    …killed.

Even less…

I do not want my daughter to be

            …abused

                        …mistreated

                                    …killed.

My daughter.

            My Greatest Love.
