He Cannot Follow Me Here

My husband beat me again and again.

            I tried to run away.

He found me and beat me again.

            His friends told him where I was.

He said it would be worthless

            to contact the police.

He said he would always look for me.

            He said he would kill me if I ran away again.

He left two days later.

            I took my youngest child and fled.

I left my older child with my mother.

I made the decision to come to the U.S.

            Because he cannot follow me here.

I will be safe.
