NaPoWriMo: Refuges

It's day one of NaPoWriMo. Today's poem is a haiku I've titled "Refuges." I hope you'll enjoy it.

Refuges


A Haiku


 

Feet beat hot pavement
An aimless walk to nowhere
An endless journey

Sun-scorched flesh blisters
Sweat slithers a nasty trail
Brutal discomfort

No, we can’t stop here
My words provoke raspy cries
From parched hungry mouths

Doors barred against us
Fearful eyes stare watchfully
Willing us to leave

Poor unwanted babes
Innocence lost with each step
My young refuges
