Riding the waves to escape
In a sailing boat of hope.
Battling for a better life
And a fairer wind,
Away from the choppy waters.
Seeking refuge in calmer seas.

But hope is dashed
Upon the rocks of inhumanity.
Blown off course
By storm winds of fear.
Safe harbours blockaded
By the bobbing drowned,
Who found their escape
Beneath the waves instead.
