A Better Future

Love and Peace

My concern is to give my son

a better future.

I do not want to fail.

I do not want to return.

It would humiliate me.

and also my son.


There is so much violence

in my country.

I want a good life for my son.

A safe life.


I ask God to know

the desires of my heart.

It is Your will and not mine.

Because my thoughts

are not Your thoughts.

God knows my heart.

God is my strength and my help

to fight to arrive here

to fight to remain.

I have so much fear.

God is my strength.
