Hi my name is Evelin Espinoza, this poem is about escaping from violence. Overall is people escaping the corruption of Mexico and moving to the USA.
Blood running down around the streets,
Rivers, Rivers , Rivers
Blood like Rivers,
People running away,
Screams heard from every corner,
Bullets flying like navy airplanes.
news all around.
What is this for?
What do they win?
What do they want?
Everyone praying to God that all this,
All this violence to stop.
living in fear,
Not able to enjoy the city,
Not able to go out without being afraid.
“no vas a ir afuera”
“No voy a estar con el pendiente que estés en peligro”.
Without my family,
Leaving my mind on them and the people,
The corruption of the country making its people escape.
Two countries not getting along
Not able to live without oppressing each other.
One with power and one with corruption,
The people sacrificing themselves
Is for a better future.Tags: #escapeLife Academy of Health and BiosciencePoemShakespeareViolence
