Our Cries

Posted By on Wed, Nov 4, 2009 at 6:19 AM

Our voices (refugees) are weeping about:
Peace in our land,
The losses we had,
The family we left behind,
Hatred in our own heart,
Your prayers for us,
Your love for us,
How you can help us,

Without forgetting,
I have love for all creatures,
And as every one goes to bed at night,
My heart wakes,
My mind gets at work,
And all I dream about is, me in the war,
Is me in the refugee camp,
Is me fighting together with those refugees I left behind to bring peace,
I have never find peace,
Reason why I am writing to you,
To hear our voices in the empty space,
Blowing in the wind, seeking to catch the ears of the merciful,

I know I have done wrong,
I am not a righteous man,
But please!
Do not hate me,
For the Bible says no one is...

I may not have wealth, but I am not greedy,
I am a poor refugee, and for that I am proud,
Proud of every thing God has made of me,
But I do not use my gift to relegate others,
Or to humiliate others,
I love all creatures, and bear the pain with them always...

And as every one goes to bed at night,
My heart wakes,
My mind gets at work,
And all I dream about is, me in the war,
Is me in the refugee camp,
Is me fighting together with those refugees I left behind to bring peace,
I have never find peace,
Reason why I am writing to you,
To hear our voices in the empty space,
Blowing in the wind, seeking to catch the ears of the merciful,
