Freedom Poetry

Bukhari, aged 10, wrote a mature and thoughtful poem, inspired by Brian Bilston’s poem ‘REFUGEES’.

 

I may be hated and unwanted,

But I’ll always fight through it

I may be hated and unwanted,

But I’ll always fight through it,

You may harm me,

Whatever you do, I’ll have a voice,

I’ll be heard,

To you I may be a theif,

Or a mercenary with guns up my sleeve.

 

My prison is fear,

My freedom is a key,

You may block my path,

But you won’t slow me,

The world has two sides,

So turn the page and let’s start over…

 

Now we’re here let’s continue,

I’m sorry I have to go

(But I’ll stay with you).

 

Refugees are cruel creatures,

Lurking in our shadows,

Trying to find a way,

To enter our land,

We won’t…

Share our food,

Our homes,

Our money,

Or anything.

 

We’ll build a wall to keep them out,

These haggard faces,

Which won’t be seen,

They think they’re right,

But they’re chancers and scroungers.

 

Oh, I’m back,

So, let’s see,

What do you think about refugees?
