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!]
