The Refugee

By Keerthana Venkatesh

Contributing Author for Spark Igniting Minds


The same speech resonating;

The same victuals consumed;

The same air we’re breathing,

Through morning, night and noon.


Yet here we few hundreds

lay homeless with two homes

flanked on either side of us-

Ripping our stinging wounds!
