Honorable President,

Honorable President
A detained refugee asks forgiveness and help.

The following art/reflection was written while Barack Obama was president of the USA:

Honorable President,

I hereby ask your forgiveness


immigrating to your country


My motive is the delinquency

in my country:

El Salvador.


The country is undermined

By the gangs.

They obligate people

To do unjust things

In exchange for your life.


I ask your help for my country

On behalf of my fellow



We are immigrating to your country


We have been threatened to death.

If we do nothing we will die


We have immigrated here

To live.


For this I ask your forgiveness



For all Salvadorians.

Maria 11-13-15

El Salvador

Please Help My Country
