the voice of a refugee

The voice of a refugee What happened to this world? So beautiful in the past The rivers lakes and oceans And fragrance of the grass And now the land is barron It's no more fertile I hope that the plants grow Once again for a while What happened to our society So generous in the past Now there is terror Scaring the mass Aware of all around me but one thing I could not stand It was worse than I could see Women being beaten up Children badly tortured Level of terror rising up No one's being nurtured I want to change this And bring back humility Return the nature's bliss And bring back prosperity Then I realised that I should be the change I want to see To bring back that ball and bat Instead of guns and artillery I want to live freely And not be so confined It's not easy being a refugee No house to live and place to find It's my request to the world To please help me To be the change I want to see And again be free

This was very sad, it had a desperate tone to it which is completely understandable considering the theme. Really nicely done and welcome to Poetrysoup.

This hit my heart hard! I loved the line "PTSD has followed you home" I'm sure that's a hard truth for many.
