Let Them Hope

Children are silhouetted next to graffiti at a makeshift camp for migrants and refugees in Idomeni, Greece, near the border with Macedonia.

Tired children halted,

by wire and soldiers

 

Their trauma hardened

into leaden fear,

carried heavily with every step

 

Family smashed,

like their home, school,

neighbourhood

The remainder of their lives,

rubble,

left behind

 

Let them cross borders,

let them have hope
