Poetry from pupils at Bankside Primary School

I am a Refugee

I hear bombs exploding

I feel the walls vibrate

I see life changing before me

I smell smoke – going up my nostrils

I taste blood in my mouth – I am in danger, danger , its not safe – who will save me?

I feel my heart hammering in my chest

I feel my heart breaking into small pieces

I see boats sailing away

I hear screams of people drowning – am I going to drown too?

I see people dying – no food- no water…nothing

I see the shores of United Kingdom – will I be safe? Will they welcome me?

I have been demhumanised – no rights , no respect…nothing

I am a Refugee

I see the smoke coming towards me – blooded faces in the fog

I feel the echoes of the shooting

Bombs explode, helicopters whirring, gunfire popping- crying, screaming and wailing

I taste thick dust in my mouth- bitter,

The fear rises in me – how can this be?  why such devastation and senseless deaths?

The blood feels warm – dripping, I feel pain

I eat the rotten food – who will help us?

R E F U G E E

R is for Refugee and respect

E is for ending the war which seems as though it has been eternal

F is for the ferocious fear

U is understanding , that is all we want

G is for giving generously

E is for equality that we should share

E is for the education that is a right for all

By Aisha, Mahnam, Maryam, Amen

 

R E F U G E E

R efugees are welcome here

E very Refugee has rights

F ighting for survival

U nderstanding and compassion – is that too much to ask?

G oing country to country and being humiliated

E very life matters so doesn’t every life count?

E very one is equal, every should unite in saying

REFUGEES ARE WELCOME HERE!
