Fearing for My Life

Tree of hope and love

I left my country

fearing for my life.

And my daughter and my son.

So beautiful.

I love my children.

I want to

protect them.

*I left to rescue them from

delinquency and violence.

The gangs only want to damage people.

No more!



I ask God to guard me

and my daughter here

and my son I left in El Salvador.


I want to work

to help my daughter

to bring my other children here

to safety.


I cannot return to El Salvador.

Ya! Me voy. (Enough! I go!)
