Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be told your ILLEGAL.
Not being able to walk down the street and hear police sirens
without chills rushing up your back, thinking your the person
the police is looking for. Your so called “lucky”if you have
your citizen papers, meaning you're Okay to Stay. You
don't have to worry about being forced into your original
home outside of the country. Afraid to go out in
public knowing at any point you could be DEPORTED,
we'd do anything for that word to never face us. Back
then all of this was never a problem, but now it's
becoming a reality.
