A poem of Despair in these gloomy days when people flee their homeland only to embark on the unwanted land.

Date: unknown

I searched her eyes


Particles of an old sob

Rained on the floorboards

Of the hostel

Where the young

Refugee girl

Who fled from the Jungle

On top of a lorry

Spent her first night.

A new dawn

On the horizon

Or so I thought.

I saw

In her eyes

Acid rain which polluted my airways.

Staring past me

A hollow look

Into the abyss of

A ruined courtyard

In a village

Where its people

Spoke the language of


The town was soaked

In the hurricane

Of acid rain

And the girl slipped away

From the grip of hope.
