Refugee

By threeroses

Borrowed words,
From tattered pages.
 
Moving pictures,
In darkened halls.
 
Songs heard,
By forbidden means.
 
Tastes acquired,
For foreign flavours.
 
Lessons learnt,
From history books.
 
Saints preached,
Promising heaven.
 
Castles built,
On pining visions.
 
Secrets whispered,
In crowded queues.
 
Dreams traded,
Under wobbly tables.
 
Crossing made,
Upon nature’s mercy.
 
Guns guard,
Beyond closed borders.
 
Bullets shower,
With no questions.
 
Hope dies,
Behind closed eyes.

    Good one 3R. Some things never change, sadly; in spite of the fact that we have taken in more refugees than the rest of the modern world (over the past decade). Some political, some fleeing natural disasters, and some seeking welfare. Cheers! - Dan
