Greedy cruel sea


A bunch of 3rd world dreamers
Brave enough to cross the sea
To turn their hopes….
In to reality

When their boats sunk
and their lives are gone
The pieces of dreams float in the sea
Shining its surface like the sun

Oh cruel sea…! !
You took them all
Leaving nothing
But their soul*(their names to call)

For all those who lost their lives crossing the Mediterranean and other seas lookin for a better life.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
