Because I am a refugee I have to leave home. Because I am a refugee I have lost my home. Because I am a refugee I have no parents. Because I am a refugee I have no identity. Because I am a refugee I sleep in tents. Because I am a refugee I eat ration food. Because I am a refugee I live in camps. Because I am a refugee my protectors constantly abuse me. Because I am a refugee I live a life of shadows. Because I am a refugee I have to tell my story 10 times.
Because I am a refugee I cannot go home. Because I am a refugee I am always a refugee. Because I am a refugee, I am always a refugee. Because I am a refugee I am a third class citizen. Because I am a refugee I live on the sympathy of others..Because I am a refugee, I am treated with suspicion, my self esteem is low. Because I am a refugee I distrust the people and feel unwelcome.
Oh a life of refugee, tears of rain pour down in my heart, stress and depression are my bed fellows. The load that hangs on my neck is heavy.
Because I am a refugee, I am a third class citizen…Oh who wants to be a refugee…
