life in refuge camp

Scorches of war, how the stars rot….
in blazing heat, soul strips in camps
doom by long waits, torn by distress,
how curse made us lesser amid men?

How we end up, our values dwindled,
replace by hurts, wails & bad memories?
when long waits, fade beauty and hopes
lay dreams in cages, feed fears & anger.
