Syrian Refugee’s Poem

Posted by Melody Leopard on Facebook:
I met Ahmed at EKO refugee camp in Greece. He is a beautiful poet. In honor of his birthday, I would like to share a poem he wrote about his experience in the camp. It’s titled ” EKO Station.”
 
If you are in EKO station
 
You will see the real dehumanisation
 
You don’t have the right to have
 
to love, to get small inspiration
 
You are just a number
 
For another greedy nation
 
They will never see you as a human being
 
Just a creature they threaten with deportation
 
I wish that I was dead in Syria
 
Rather than be in this situation
 
I am not sure what you can call this treatment from the best civilisation
 
Despite this all
 
We will not break down
 
We are the strongest combination
 
To cross the mountains
 
The desert the borders
 
To make the sea our last destination
 
To be Syrian that means to suffer in every way
 
In your imagination
