Javier, hijo, where were you born?

“Yo no se” he replied, downcast, forlorn

A soul, a face, sore, bare feet

Scars inside and out, life on the street.


Hijo, peace, this is your home

Your brothers, your friends, bienvenidos, welcome

Your soul, your heart, we want them back

We will find them here - IPODERAC
