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

Thoughts

        I am torn in two
through thoughts of you
                 but
         will thoughts 
               ever
                be...
            enough?

Please... Help Me!

I had home, 
Smartphone,
wife...
good life

You're just like me
but now...
I'm Refugee
