This is a poem in tribute to Claudia Patricia Gomez Gonzalez, who was shot and killed at the US border on Wednesday, May 23, 2018.


Claudia (Claudia Patricia Gomez Gonzalez)

Her journey ended here, somewhere between Laredo and the Rio Bravo,
A 1,500 mile journey to find Americana.
Her passing through did cause a violent death, and our hands' are now bloodied ,
as she was unable to cross.
Now we are only able to make the sign of the cross,
We can pray, or we can change policy, so we don't have this loss.

Her name was Claudia
Traveling from the Rio Bravo, in search of nirvana, or just a job, from Guatemala,

She was stopped in her tracks at the border, now forever
marked as a border crossing, lacking any social order.

There was no weapon, 'they were hiding", locals say,
while the others said they had weapons, and used them that day.

There was no weapon, "they were hiding", locals say,
and the others said they had weapons, and used them that day.

The bloody hands of Uncle Sam, etched in a policy where leaders' don't give a damm.
She did die a violent death, by bloody hands of a government policy,
that supports the American dream.
She was gunned down, the useless loss of life,
a dream unfulfilled, a murder as it would seem.
What are we without our American dream?

She was Claudia, shot down at the border,
trying to flee a place with no law, no order.

The story goes that she "hit him with a blunt object, or "they" hit him,
as the border patrol will say,
and the locals dispute this account to this very day.
'there was no weapon, they were hiding, is what the locals say.

See what happens when all people take a stand,
instead of listening to the words,
"This is what happens with you people"
We will take a stand, By the people and for the people".
for life, for liberty, and the pursuit against a policy, in this great land.
