Emigrants - Poem by Ray Lucero

They came;
To flee oppression,
To thwart poverty,
To support families,
To fill the lowest toil

Some failed,
Some prospered,
Some deported,
Some hide

Most are;

All are;
Have souls,
Have spirits,
Are God’s Children

    They came to live a life that has been robbed from them through years of foreign economic intimidation, oppression, aggression and robbery.

    all people deserve the same chance in life but sadly for 70% of the worlds population that doesn't exist and westerners wonder why and complain when desperate, despeate people risk their life's to enter wealthy countries.

    everybody it seems are so quick to point fingers and complain but are so slow to ever ask why?

    why are all the most naturally wealthy countries in the world the poorest and suffer from endless conflict and suffering?

    Ray, keep opening eyes my brother

    I guess this is naieve but wouldn't be nice if it truly was a free planet! Nice poem, I like the repetition of the first words. Moyaxx (Report) Reply
