Internally Displaced Persons (Idps)

Rating: 4.8
They leave their homes
Unwillingly forced
And follow their fate
Through fields and trails
Massifs and woods
With all their goods
Love and hate
Mores and tales
All in bales
Carrying their own
Flesh and bones

Anywhere, Everywhere. The " safe" places are becoming scarce and rare. Wonderful poem. The words are soul driven and truly penetrate my soul.
