I Left Without Anything

My Confidence is in God

I Left Without Anything

Enough! I go!

I left without anything.

I left my country.

All the violence.

There is no security.

So much evil covers the land

where I was born.

I seek a safer place for my daughter.

Where she can live without fear

without death threats.

Where she can attend school

safely.

Where she can prepare

to be someone in life.

*

We left with nothing.

No money.

We carrying nothing with us

except

I take my dreams

and

My confidence in God.

*

I want to leave behind

all the suffering

all the violence.

I am able to do

all things through Christ

who strengthens me.

Mother 8-26-15
