The Immigrant

~~~

Leaving Argentina ...

 

 

I didn't want

                  to leave,

 

my mother forced me to,

 

she put me

             on the plane,

 

 

 

and in doing so

 

 

she saved

my life.

shipped away

 

 

separated

from everyone I love

 

not knowing where

                         I'm going,

 

 

it had happened

so many times before

 

 

and now

it was happening again,

 

 

leaving Argentina

 

 

leaving my home country,

 

it was

the ultimate shipping away
