For My Daughter

 

For Marllely, My Daughter

For My Daughter

I fell in love.

Time passed.

I was pregnant.

The father disappeared.

My parents took me in.

*

In May 2008 a sister was born.

My daughter.

Marllely

Already she is 7 years old.

*

My mother helped with much.

She gave me a

good example to follow to be

a good mother.

*

The father of the child

Came to see

My

Daughter.

She is very intelligent.

Now he wants his daughter.

My daughter.

He calls every day demanding:

“Give me my daughter

Or

I

Will

Kill

You.”

*

For this reason

I arose from my fear

To immigrate

To the U.S.

To prevent my death.

To ward off giving my daughter.

He would use her.

He would kill her.
