So Many Bad People in My Town


There are so many bad people in my town.

They deprive us of

basic things we need to buy

for our children.



They burn our cars.

They burn our businesses.

They make our children:

afraid to go to school

afraid to play outside

afraid to walk home from school.

These bad people do not respect us.

They do not respect our children.


They do evil things to our children.


Our children are

scared, fearful, afraid.

They cry.


I do not want to be locked up with my children.

I feel only fear.

I am here for a better future.

for my family

for my children

for me.

We came here to be safe.

Hope: Past, Present Future
