I left my country, customs and life
Without my own decision,
I left my country, customs and life that I had already done
to move into the unknown
where I am supposed to have opportunities and a better quality of life.
Arriving made me feel mixed feelings,
I did not imagine that it would hurt
like this until I was in the moment.
Over time you get over it little by little and build your path for a “better life,”
A way of life that you did not see
in your country.
After all, you leave the country, but not your life.
