My eyes are wet.

As you leave the shores of your home land

My eyes are wet.

As you say bye to kinsmen and women

My eyes are wet.

As you cross the hot desert

My eyes are wet.

As your body withers from dehydration

My eyes are wet.

As your fleet blister in the hot sand

My eyes are wet.

As you pass by the carcass and skeleton of fore migrants

My eyes are wet.

My eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

And my eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

As you jump on the train of death

My eyes are wet

As your delicate fingers hold on to the rusty wagon

My eyes are wet

As the train blares and whistles

Through the forest, mountain tunnels and the thick jungles

My eyes are wet.

As you witness a fellow lose control of the grip

Only to land underneath the hot rubbing metals of the wheels and track

My eyes are wet.

My eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

And my eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

As you meet the pathfinder

My eyes are wet.

As you hand over your life savings for the perilous trip

My eyes are wet.

As you are convinced of your safety

My eyes are wet.

As you drift away in the raft, the deadly canoe, the salvaged macabre vessel

My eyes are wet.

As you climb on the rickety

My eyes are wet.

As you dare the powers of the current

My eyes are wet.

As you submit to the violence of the wind

My eyes are wet.

As you show no fear of the dangerous bottomless water

My eyes are wet.

As you drift alone in the middle of the dangerous waters

My eyes are wet.

As you gulp and bop

My eyes are wet.

As bubbles exit your body on your descent

My eyes are wet.

My eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

And my eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

 

As the bombardment rip your family apart

My eyes are wet.

As the smell of sulphur pervades

My eyes are wet

As you witness the debauchery and carnage

My eyes are wet.

As you walk all night with your young, old and disable

My eyes are wet.

As the inclement rips your skin, bone and determination

My eyes are wet.

As you remember the good life you left

My eyes are wet.

As the cowards deprive you of your dignity

And your women of their virtue

My eyes are wet.

As the planted mines go off

Severing you of your limbs

My eyes are wet.

My eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

And my eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

 

As the leaders selfishly go after each other

My eyes are wet.

As they use you as canon fodders for their aggrandizement

My eyes are wet.

As their beliefs rip your community to shreds

My eyes are wet.

As they rip off your endowed resources

My eyes are wet.

As they feed their pets left over fillet minion

While you have to move on

My eyes are wet.

As they sit around making empty promises without resolutions

My eyes are wet.

As they sacrifice your blood for their greed

My eyes are wet.

 

My eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

And my eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

 

As you get to your destination

My eyes are wet.

As you find out you are not welcome

My eyes are wet.

As you are called names, spat on and ridiculed

My eyes are wet.

As you are ostracized and excised on cuffs

My eyes are wet.

 

My eyes are wet because my eyes are wet

And my eyes are wet because my eyes are wet

As some kind hearted welcome you to their land with open arms

My eyes are wet.

As you are received with compassion and shown respect

My eyes are wet.

As people who never met you show you love

My eyes are wet.

As people who are not of your belief lend you a hand

My eyes are wet.

As people who are not of your color, creed or religion provide you with food

My eyes are wet.

As people who do not know who you are give you clothes and shoes

My eyes are wet.

As people who believe in humanity shower you with dignity

My eyes are wet.

As you begin your journey in your adopted home land

My eyes are wet.

My eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.

And my eyes are wet because my eyes are wet.
