Fear of Dying

Ya Me Voy

I left my country

fear of dying threatened me.

My daughter saw the blood.

She saw the murderers.


They killed my husband.

Now we must go.


I am responsible for my mother.

My father is dead.

I have nothing for support

in El Salvador.

I want to work.

I want to see my mother.

We have family here

brothers and sisters

aunts and uncles

grandparents too

I only hope to be with them soon.


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