i am an alien

I’m an alien From a poor country A refugee in a rich country From a far away third world country Where corruption as cancer is spread every where And people starve of hunger. Within frontiers at El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala. Refugees like me come and go Through the frontiers to Mexico, USA, Europe. There is a great difference in the world Between rich and poor countries Holland is a European rich country The older you get the most isolated discriminated you feel. As in Honduras in Holland there is unemployment. Families are unable to fulfill their basic needs for their kids. You can protest it won’t help! There’s Unemployment, drug addiction As cancer poverty spread everywhere in the veins of third world countries. People are searching in the garbage. Can you explain me this difference? Does it make any sense?
