I come from a musical place
Where they shoot me for my song
And my brother has been tortured
By my brother in my land.

Amazing poem so aptly worded. Must be said it is true that bad and mad leaders are responsible for creating refugees, so has Khairul Sir also responded, I mean I read that from his comment.5 Stars!

'We can all be refugees Nobody is safe, All it takes is a mad leader Or no rain to bring forth food' - 'Mad Leaders' are more responsible for creating refugees than the freaks of nature.

Your words are heartfelt. Many of the human race should be ashamed. May the world wake up and see the value of life.

A wonderful poem of some sadness that most of us will never know. Benjamin does and expresses it beautifully.

We can all be refugees We can all be told to go, We can be hated by someone For being someone....greatest writings; situation in favor of you today; maybe tomorrow it will come in favor of us; so do not hate each other; together we live together we die everywhere every time- that's peace at all

I come from a beautiful place Where they hate my shade of skin They don't like the way I pray And they ban free poetry.. very good poem pointing to the social injustices which a poet suffers in a christian world where they speak of equality. tony
