Welcome to the USA

Christ Strengthens Me.

I came with my daughter.

            She is 11 years old.

We arrived here Wednesday.

Last Friday we arrived at the

            Border Station.

*

It was very cold.

            We slept on the floor.

            It was hard and cold.

We ate warm burritos

            morning * lunch * and again in the afternoon.

My daughter ate better food.

            She had corn

            a piece of chicken

            and juice.

*

The people spoke to us

            in rude and commanding ways.

I was very nervous

            on my journey from the border

            to family detention.

I wondered if it would be the same

            Or worse.

Now that I am here

            I am very happy.

            Relieved.

They show us a lot of care.

*

My daughter loves the school.

*

I am praying to be allowed

            to go to Los Angeles, California.

To be with my father

            and several other family members.

I want to learn English.

I want to find a good job.

I want to work for my family.

*

Whatever Christ wants…

We want to live together.

            As a family.
