Siento que no hay tiempo para mi. 
Siento que lo arruino todo.
Siento que no puedo ser feliz.
Siento que la libertad es por lo único que juego.
Siento que soy un fracaso.
Siento que todo lo hago mal.
Siento que se me hace tarde.
Siento que me falta el aire.

Thousands Are Fleeing Venezuela by Two-Lane Border Bridge
For weeks, Venezuelans have been fleeing by the busload as President Nicolas Maduro consolidates autocratic power.

Meanwhile in Venezuela…

From blue dawn until well past dark, Luis Martinez pushes a rickety hand truck piled high with luggage across a long, two-lane bridge linking Venezuela and Colombia.

On one day alone last month, Martinez crossed some 40 times.

“In a year, Venezuela is going to be left without people,” Martinez, 32, said as he caught his breath between trips.

For weeks, Venezuelans have been flocking by the busload to San Antonio del Tachira, a border town of some 62,000 residents, fleeing as President Nicolas Maduro consolidates autocratic power. The Simon Bolivar International Bridge is the avenue for an outpouring unprecedented in the history of this oil-rich nation. Crowds stream toward the bridge, attended by street hawkers selling juice, fried pastries and bus tickets and men who ferry their meager possessions to a new life.

According to Colombia’s migration authority, the number of foreigners entering Cucuta, the first major city across the bridge, more than doubled this summer. Over 50,000 came in August, up from 22,700 in June. The numbers don’t reflect dual nationals returning to their homeland, or thousands simply crossing into Colombia without passing official checkpoints.

“We have lived through dictatorships, but never before have so many people crossed the border like this,” said Franklyn Duarte, an opposition congressmen who represents Venezuela’s northwestern frontier in Tachira state. “What we have in Venezuela is anarchy.”

On taking office in 1999, President Hugo Chavez initiated two decades of brutal politics as part of a self-styled socialist revolution that started a rivulet of emigration from an affluent country whose citizens had little tradition of seeking their fortunes elsewhere. But the price of oil plunged, and the country fell into turmoil and bloody protests. In late July, Maduro, Chavez’s hand-picked successor, convened an all-powerful assemblycharged with rewriting the nation’s charter and persecuting his foes.

The rivulet became a flood as residents began pouring into San Antonio del Tachira.

“I never thought they’d actually go through with it,” said Wendy Fernandez, a 40-year-old medical-record archivist from Maracaibo. She decided to leave the sticky capital of Venezuela’s oil industry for Lima after a tear-gas canister left a gaping wound in her son’s forehead.

“This was the last straw,” she said pointing at an inch-long scar on the 19-year-old’s face. “Every time a window of hope opens, they close it.’
