An endless night. Kept awake by screams Inside the head And hunger In their bellies. Endless streams of tears, Like torrential rain, Creating a haze around the eyes. A country, Now no longer theirs. Uprooted from their land Forced into a life of vagabonds! A dream shattered. Struggles threaten to break resolve. Ends never seeming to meet. Happiness feels like on perpetual retreat. Colours never come calling. Shades of grey always looming. No rainbows decorate their piece of sky. There's endless sorrow Till it's their day to die.
