The Laws Do Not Help People

Laws do not protect

Fear was behind my decision

to leave my country

to protect my son

to protect myself.


He assaulted me.

He caused me much medical.

He threatened to kill me.

He threatened to kill my son.


I knew the walk would be difficult

but I had more fear

to remain in my country.

The laws to no help people.

The laws do no protect us.

We had to leave.


We departed January 7th.

We arrived January 15th.

We are here for protection.

We are here for safety.

We are here for asylum.

Ya! Me voy! [Enough! I go!]
