Refugee, poetry written by Dee Min at
Kevin Buckert



written by: Dawn Minott



Walking for days
Days in cold, sleet and rain—away
Away from ways
Ways of life that are changing
Changing all around
Around me faster
Faster than my mind can conceive
Conceive that war
War is raging
Raging in my homeland
Homeland no longer home
Home no longer land
Land I love, I defend
Defend to the very end
End of the road I arrive
Arrive in a new place, not home, I stand
Stand, I will not fall
