REFUGEES by Toheeb Sheu


Asylum seeker without sticker
Struggling to survive with mouth speaker
Clamoring for a new home
Just to flee from old home.

The world’s biggest refugee hosting country
Turkey with 2.7 Syria refugees
Pakistan with 1.6 Afghan refugees
Still looking for the root of escapee.

Fear of political persecution
Fear of religious persecution
Fear of ethnics persecution
Fleeing most to neighboring countries.

Pity the children
Killing like a fat hen
Pity their parent
For having much patience.

People lost their life
On their way to cross border
Syrian moving to Turkey for their life
Pakistan running to Afghan to escape murder.

With pitiful mind
Water rolled down my checks from dull eyes
Oh! what a pity escaped my lips
When I saw people swimming in the pool of blood.

They were asylum seeker
Now granted refugee status
With the help of you and I we can help them
To feel comfortable in our country.

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
They have done a lot.
