Journey | Sunday Observer


Thousands of Refugees voyage
To the land where the horizons of
The future is met...
They travel on a vessel,
Carrying a baggage filled with
dreams and wishes
Abandoning the warmth
And benevolence of the nation
Deserting the love and comradeship
Of the beloved ones
Losing the treasures they possess
To escape from the bloodthirsty terrorism
Misery croon a pensive melody
Summoning the wave of despair
Mysterious shadows plague the escapees,
Burying their aspirations
Before reaching the destination
