Ruby Guzman

Hillcrest Elementary School

El Mexicano

I am a scared boy that crossed the border

I left when I was 16 for a better future

the future looks like the past and promise

I haven't seen my mom in ten years

It feels like an explosion of sadness

I have a daughter and a son and a wife now

No birthdays 

No visiting nieces

No happiness

I am a scared boy that crossed the border

I came to America with my brother

I miss the animals

I miss my sisters

I miss everybody!

I am a scared boy that crossed the border
