Risk My Life

Leave a comment

A Letter to my X

In the beginning, 

it was a discovery process 

to learn that your culture has taught you 

to invite foreign women to your country 

to come visit you. 

I was one of them. 

I fell in love with you 

and accepted you for who you were. 

But now, I do not believe you want to let go 

of that opportunity for me 

and for that reason I’m out. 

I could be wrong, 

but I’m willing to risk my life 

that I am right.
