I AM A CHILD (Thread):

I am child
escaping harm
Wrapped in the arms of my mother
Searching for a place to belong



Our journey
full of terrors
Sacrifices she made
to flee our abusers



It took weeks to get here
there was hope in sight
Uniformed men stopped our entry
Hope denied



I am child
overwhelmed with fear
Where is my mother?
My pain, sincere



They took me away
left me with strangers
My mind, distraught
I can’t control the anger



I can hear their voices
that’s the outrage of a country
denouncing the orange man
and his need for separation



He reduces us to animals
says the country is invested
The people rise up
His policies, contested



Where is my mother?
Without her I am lost
They are destroying my soul
at all cost



I am a child
simply left behind
With a wound on my heart
And scars forever on my mind
