will you come back today?
will those men who call us immigrants take you away?
I do not belong here
Or so they say
We steal their jobs and don't pay taxes
TV commercials and newspaper articles ingnoring our cries
We just want a new life. No poverty or hunger.
Can't they see it?
The Dream Act, Amnesty, a Green Card
If they paid attention they would see
There is no difference between them and me
We just want to be equal
To not fear if we might not see our loved ones the next day
To not tremble and cry as they are taken away
I just want to say good bye to my mother with certainty
That she will soon return to me
So I will not have to question whether good bye
is indeed our destiny.
