    Gotta admit I found this a little glitchy to read at times but it still kept me hooked.

    It's a pretty raw expression of your homelands state of affairs and yes I agree, in light of the events in recent years they seem to have been largely forgotten.

    I've not been to El Salvador and it's unlikely I ever will, however I have been to similar places where corruption rules supreme.

    I really liked the passion in this poem and I liked the fact that you still hold pride in your home.

    For these reasons you get what I consider a well deserved nomination.

    Regards

      Thank you for your time and nomination Craig. I agree the editing and rhyme scheme could have been formatted better... I posted it from my phone, I'll edit as soon as I can.

    This made me break out in tears. It really don't matter where we from we are all living human beings and we deserve the best. Unfortunately the way society is going there is not to many who have compassion. I am glad that this was nominated. Add to my favorite. All the very best.

    This is so very emotional and honest. It's such ashame that people still feel the need to ask these types of questions etc. In my opinion it doesn't matter where someone is from aslong as they're a honest, nice person.

    All the best

    I don't pretend to understand the struggles, poverty, and violence your country suffers. I do know that when people come together (from across the globe) and begin to embrace one another's society issues, change is possible. Because you've decided to write this brave piece, I will no longer be ignorant to the political disasters in El Salvador and what it is doing to the people. My prayers will be with you and for your country. Congrats on the win!!!!!!
