My Trip from Guatemala

The journey

My trip began

Saturday, August 16th

I came with my daughter.

El Salvador is our home.

*

We spent one night in Guatemala.

We slept.

We left the next afternoon

to begin the long walk

to the borderlands.

*

I came with good friends

another mother making the journey.

It’s a shame because

we became separated.

I felt very sad.

*

We arrived to Monterrey.

We stayed one night.

We arrived in Reynosa.

We stayed one night and one day.

Then we walked to the gate

to cross the border.

*

Now we are here.

All is good

Because

We have food.

*

My daughter goes to school.

I am sad when she is at school.

But she is happy.

I give her a little kiss

and wait to see her

when school is over.

*

This is the story of my trip from Guatemala.

to safety

in the United States.
