Sanctuary

Sanctuary By: Mike Mezz Eclipse Award Winner 2020 Best General Poetry/Prose

This could be considered a controversial subject, but it's the reason I write. Sanctuary By: Mike Mezz

There's a certain feeling you don't know When your terrified and have to flee They'll be coming for the lives of your own You have to save your whole family

You have nothing or anywhere to go They've taken everything you hold true Running is less dangerous than home Nobody is coming to save you....

Can't you see the States don't want you there? They don't care about your danger and fear They don't care about the kids you hold dear

Can't you see the States don't want you there? They don't care about your danger and fear They don't care about the kids you hold dear "But, they're going to kill us if we stay here...." "But, they're going to kill us if we stay here....."

Now we cry

Now we cry We need asylum

You scream but no one hears

You scream but no one hears Again we cry

Again we cry We need sanctuary

Until the end I'll fight to be free...

Until the end I'll fight to be free... "Please save my family...."

A long journey is ahead for you to trek Maybe death will come before you arrive All you have are the clothes on your back The only chance for you to live is to try

You have traveled thousands of miles There's no other way to save your existence You gave your water to your wife and children But now you see the border in the distance

Can't you see the States don't want you here? They don't care about your danger and fear They don't care about your loved ones tears

Can't you see the States don't want you here? They don't care about your danger and fear They don't care about your loved ones tears "But I can see the American Flag flying near...."

Now we cry

Now we cry We need asylum

You scream but no one hears

You scream but no one hears Again we cry

Again we cry We need sanctuary

Until the end I'll fight to be free..

Until the end I'll fight to be free.... "Please help my family..."

Again we cry

Again we cry We need sanctuary

We need sanctuary Our screams fall upon deaf ears

Our screams fall upon deaf ears You scream but no one hears

Until the end I'll fight to be free... "Please save my family..."

"Please, we need sanctuary....."
