STRANGERS

STRANGERS
 
The Neighbour

………………………
 I see a stranger
 Standing in my land
 ………………………
……………………….
I will not sleep tonight,
For tonight I am going to fight,
Any strangers I can find
I love those of my own kind
………………………
……………………….
For my family and me,
 All we need is to be free
Free of brown, free of black
We just need to, “Send them back”
…………………………
…………………………..
A life, without hatred and fear,
A life without a single tear?
It is not worth being alive,
Without any reason to fight to survive
……………………………………
……………………………………
…………………………………..
Refugee

I sense danger
 ……………………………
 Standing in my land
 I can see signs, footprints in the sand
 They will visit here tonight
 I will not sleep tonight
 ……………………………
 ……………………………
 I love those who are so kind
 That help the weak and the blind
 But the time has come to flee,
 For my family and me
 ……………………………..
 ……………………………...
 We just need to, “Live as One”
 All together, omitting none
 One family, spreading far and near
 A life, without hatred and fear
 …………………………………
 ……………………………..
 Without any reason to fight to survive
 My children are happy, are alive
 They are strong and well fed
 Tonight, they sleep safe, in their own bed
