R.E.F.U.G.E

By
Came here to escape poverty

They took our land and claimed it their own

So we fought

Ended up called The Forty Year War

Missing out on childhood
Serving the country came first

Your family that you missed out on were dying of thirst

Your brother was forced to go to war and he didn't make it like you

Hearing about your mother crying at the annoucement saying he got hit too.

And here you are wishing you were never in your shoes

They say Education is the key to Success...that excluded you.

Just because you grew up poor doesn't make you any different from high class

Will I escape?, how long is this going to last, you always ask

So you end up going to a refuge camp

Running away to a land called America

Where they say dreams come true

But the "real dream" is on you
