Paying the price for being born in the wrong country

Migrants_in_Hungary_2015_Aug_018

A man burned my house, killed my wife and maimed my son

I ran to the neighbours to beg for help,  food for my son and roof to sleep

Only to be labelled as the man who burned my house, killed my wife and maimed my son

 

It was not my choice, or my dream or even my option

to beg my neighbour for help, for food and for shelter

But I am not the man who burned my house, killed my wife or maimed my son

 

You Slam the door , shut the windows and pull the drapes

because you fear i might burn your house , kill your wife and maim your son

Trust me,I know the pain, the loss the suffering

 

I come to you as a human, literally begging, seeking help

its not my choice nor my dream nor my option

A man burned my house, killed my wife and maimed my son

 

I am just paying the price for being born in the wrong country

I am not that man, I am not that man, I am not that man
