I AM A CHILD (Thread):

I am child
escaping harm
Wrapped in the arms of my mother
Searching for a place to belong

#KeepFamiliesTogether

1/

Our journey
full of terrors
Sacrifices she made
to flee our abusers

#ReuniteTheFamilies

2/

It took weeks to get here
there was hope in sight
Uniformed men stopped our entry
Hope denied

#WhereAreTheChildren

3/

I am child
overwhelmed with fear
Where is my mother?
My pain, sincere

#KeepFamiliesTogether

4/

They took me away
left me with strangers
My mind, distraught
I can’t control the anger

#ReuniteTheFamilies

5/

I can hear their voices
that’s the outrage of a country
denouncing the orange man
and his need for separation

#WhereAreTheChildren
#WhereAreTheBabies

6/

He reduces us to animals
says the country is invested
The people rise up
His policies, contested

#KeepFamiliesTogether
#WhereAreTheChildren

7/

Where is my mother?
Without her I am lost
They are destroying my soul
at all cost

#ReuniteFamiliesNow
#FamiliesBelongTogther

8/

I am a child
simply left behind
With a wound on my heart
And scars forever on my mind

#KeepFamiliesTogether
#ReuniteFamiliesNow
#WhereAreTheChildren
