To See My Daughter Smile…

To See My Daughter Smile…

There is so much violence

in my country

Guatemala.

I want to work

to give my daughter

peace

and

safety.

I want to see her play outside

without fear

of someone

assaulting us

and

removing our belongings.

I want to see my daughter smile . . . .
