The Boy On The Beach

Please don't let my little life be in vain;
ignore my people's suffering and pain
We've been displaced through no fault of our own; 
too scared to stay in what once was our home

Left our families, possessions behind; 
hoping and praying that peace we would find
Taking perilous risks... just to be free
Cruel twist of fate made me refugee

It's too late for me; the sea claimed my life 
Father mourns also my brother... and wife
My name was *Alan*, "the boy on the beach"
Empathise with compassion... I beseech
