One Child

Where does one child refugee head?

What path could lead to a better life?

Seemingly forthright, determined, resolute

What horrors experienced to be

so dogged?

 

One step followed by the next,

onward

Railway tracks lead to cities,

away

 

From the comfort

of our lounges,

we see the threats

in the trees

He sees only

a chance

at life
