A Poem for UNHCR

Posted in Arts by KANERE on August 28, 2013

We are like microorganisms

in a dry riverbed. The Earth, the wind

and our native countries unite to persecute us.

Our countries dispose of us, the earth broils us

and the wind blows us away, de-graded

and traumatized. We have no allies. We only

have U, beloved UNHCR. Life is wind erosion,

Life is dispersing us like dust.

Lucky citizens of the world, if you have

time to breathe today, or go to the beach,

I beg you to look out for us. We are always there

blowing in the wind or sinking in boats

from across your golden beaches.
