Do You Know What I Going Through? - Poem by Rajan Tra

My mind and body is drenched in a pit,
Where even sunlight dare not to reach,
Narrow minds have blocked everything
Leaving us in the clouds of darkness

They shut their doors on us
They call us by the name refugee
Which promise of God do they fulfill?
When they are blessed with everything

We are born with our fate to flee,
And this flee is the only way to survive
Survive in this beautiful world for what?
When people around us do not want to see us live!

Whether we are unfortunate or ill-fated
It is for you to decide, our tears have dried
We lost our identity, struggling with self
Truly earth is ready to embrace in its grave.

    The dark despair engulfing the mind of a refugee is captured here with empathy! In the time of a refugee influx when we watch through TV the agony and struggles of the refugees fleeing from West Asian countries, this is a timely write! Welcome to poem hunter, Rajan! (Report) Reply
