Forbidden Borders


Some of them escaping, running from,

Poverty, lack of work,

Lack of opportunity.


Some of them bringing,

Benefits to society,

Supplying a better life for their families.


Some of them outlaws,

Running from the Mexican government,

Working for drug cartels.


Some of them thinking,

Immigration should be easier.

Some of them wanting to stay in Mexico.


Esto es para Mexico.

    I like that you wrote a poem about the struggles in Mexico and how you’re putting yourselves in the shoes of people in those situations. I wish that you had made it rhyme.

    STAR: I liked your theme, because it is an important topic
    STAR: I like hoe you name every major problem
    WISH: I wish there was a rhyming pattern in it
