the awful truth

as unbelievable and unfair that may appear it is the sad reality of thousands immigrants *(mostly haitians and spanish immigrants).

..everyday living behind bars of fear and hope...

afraid of being caught, and eventually be sent home..where most of the time isn't the place they'd want to be right now....

hope they'll get a chance...

a chance of survival, a chance of living...

which too often just not to say ALWAYS slipped away from them...and i can only imagine how awful can it be.
it's just AWFUL when you know you locked up but your freedom is only a flight away, but this freedom sadly isn't the one you want...more like a dillema..to leave or to live, which is the question?

very touching poem.just great!congrats!!

Morine.
