Running out of steam.

Running out of steam as I cross the border

back into the country of my birth,

how I got into this situation I’m not really sure,

was it my schooling or how I was brought up,

it was hard as a child looking after

my younger siblings after my parents

died in a civil war, and a killer disease.

After so many borders I have been turned

away at this final barrier, and I wonder why?

Hundreds are here with similar stories

and I join them as we try to cross en-mass,

to no avail we are turned back again and again,

we beg to be given a chance to have a new life,

only to be told we are not wanted,

we have been told lies by those in authority,

they promised that they will let us in.
