Oh ! what is my future and where can i find
my future !
So lost, exhausted , hopeless and unhappy ,
Fear and doubts my companion
Day and night I meditate ,
Thoughts of future envelop and scare me ,
Where are my going to with my family that
have survived this holocaust .
I am a nobody, and no one will miss me
When am gone, no government will bother to announce
My exit or death, no one will be there to take me to
The hospital if am wounded,
and no one will provide food and shelter
because there are none for me .
In me lies a Long and sad Story ,
That need to be told .
I dream of future , and long for a better future
Chills of the horrow fill my view
I must find my future
for I see no future here
Oh God, my helper
Give me my hope,
I have no hope, you are my last hope
Grab me and guide me through this search .
I Long for a future,
I need a future , and I want to belong
To a land where justice is an order ,
Where different Religion are not robbing shoulders ,
Where bombing and shelling are not
the order of the day, and where Terror is
not the government .
Who knows what future holds for me
In a land thorn with war !
I have no hold, no shelter and no future
My Family are trapped in a land that have known
no justice , but terror ,
I know not what, but i must leave
I run for my dear life ,
As i pick few things ready to jump
Into the next available boat
That will take me to my future
Shall i get there , uncertain,
If i die , i call it my future fight
And if i survive this boat journey ,
I will jump and kiss my God ,
I weep not, i frail not, i must run for my
I must disappear now and get into the
Boat that will take me to my future,
I must run and i dont know where ,
Which way is uncertain, but all i know
Is that ” I Long for a future “-
