Our Only Escape is the U.S.

Ya Me Voy

We left quickly


my country

El Salvador.

My only escape is the U.S.

with my son.

It is better to die


Than to die doomed.

Condemned by the gangs.

People in my country told me

“The trip is dangerous . . .”

But we made the trip.

God never fails.

I have to tell you”

God never leaves me.
