We Could Not Remain in Our Country

Libertad Freedom

We left our country for protection

for my son and myself.

We are not able to remain

in our home country.

We received death threats.


I began thinking about leaving

when we received the death threats.

My father and brothers would not be able

to help us.

My father said to go.

He does not want anything bad

to happen

to us.


My actions were

to protect my son.

I ask God to protect my son

against hunger.

I ask God to give him clothing

so he is not cold.

Help my son to be

strong in faith.

Help us that we may live
