Unhappy migration

by Lucio Muñoz

Poor butterfly,
With the cover of night,
Away she wanted to fly,
In search of freedom, her natural right:
She wanted to escape social exclusion,
And then she fell into ethnic discrimination.

She was unable to say,
Which experience was the worse,
Just that when forced migration is at play,
You can end up with feelings of confusion and remorse:
No place to return to strive,
And no much room in the new land to thrive.
