Food for Thought-If The Boat Doesn’t Sink, I Will Not Die

lebanon_syrian_refugee_10_23_2012

If the boat doesn’t sink,
I will not die,
But I will not go home,
If my passport isn’t taken by the smuggler,
I will not become an unknown,
But I will not go home,
If I am not beaten by border guards,
I will not crawl to the next town,
But I will not go home,
If I am not robbed,
My children might eat,
But they will not go home,
If I am asked, does God care?
I will not answer,
Because I do not know,
In which God,
You will require me
to believe,
so that we may see,
a new place,
called home.
