At every border



Like empty shells,
We are scattered
On dangerous strange shores.
No purpose and no friends.
We are the world disposables
And dispossessed.
No rights and no passports
And no papers.
Cast outside and beyond,
The charity of the human race.
Strangers to the land
and strangers to the Sounds.
We are lost to humanity!!
Some may think we have no dignity.
We see far beyond the limits
Of the skies and past human vanity.
