Dec 8, 2013 – There Is A Cry: Poem Dedicated To African Migrants Killed In Search Of Greener Pasture

Darkness has beclouded the day
The sun has hid it’s face
The storm is raging
And the sea roars
The echoes in the dark
Makes my heart bleed

There is a cry
The cries of drowning migrants
Screaming for help
Oh what a tragedy
Devil’s evil arrow terminating human(Death)
Has struck again

The sea has turned blood red
The fishes flips
And the water boatmen swims in delight
At the sight of the drown bodies
Those of our brothers and sisters
The trustees of posterity

They’re fleeing from war and poverty
They journeyed through the desert
The land of no return
In a crammed truck
Like cows heading to the abattoir
Bread of tears was their food
And their urine a juice without choice

Devils evil arrow terminating human(Death)
Struck many while traversing the Sahara
Their cadaver devoured by the birds
Some who survived the pangs of death
Met their Waterloo
In the unfriendly sea of death

May the souls of the fallen heroes
Gain unhindered access to the halls of Valhalla
Reserved for the brave.
And may their spirits continue to haunt
Those wicked and heartless leaders
Who had contributed to their untimely demise
