Refugees - A Poem
The harrowing images of refugees fleeing their war-torn countries, searching for peace and safety continue to be brought into our homes – our warm, neat, comfortable homes. Homes that these families once had, people they loved, jobs and businesses, food and shelter, school and healthcare, dignity and security. Now what do they have? This adjacent poem brings it home to me.
The Songs of the Sinless
Hear the sad songs of the sinless
Call across the crystal sea,
Calling out for peace and safety
Calling out to you and me.
Can you hear their voices singing
Even from their ocean grave?
“We are lost but others follow
Others that you have to save!”
For we left our homes and country
Driven out by war and strife.
Driven out by men of evil
Men who cared not for our life.
So we left the land our fathers
Strove to make a better place;
As we fled our ancient homeland
Tears of sorrow stained our face.”
“All our worldly goods forsaken
Only hope – to that we clung.
Even that was taken from us
Now our final song is sung.
Shall our hopes for a bright future
Sink beneath the ocean blue?
Let our torch of hope and triumph
Pass instead from us to you!”
