Lost in Darfur
The displacement camp is overcrowded with a sea of people.
Today another village burns while families are killed.
It’s not safe here for this camp has been attacked.
Where do we flee or where do we hide.
A home would be nice…
A normal meal…
A normal life is just a dream…
Where is the justice.
Why can’t there be peace.
My hope is for my people to be embraced for who they are.
I ask those who hear to light candle;
A guiding light to help us find our away.
We may never see the light of our hopes and dreams,
But we remember memories of our blessings and gifts.
We are not be part of this world anymore,
But we are thankful for this world in which we live.
May we find peace until we have light for our path…
