We Refugees
by Benjamin Zephaniah

I come from a musical place
Where they shoot me for my song
And my brother has been tortured
By my brother in my land.

I come from a beautiful place
Where they hate my shade of skin
They don't like the way I pray
And they ban free poetry.

The Pig
by Roald Dahl

In England once there lived a big
And wonderfully clever pig.
To everybody it was plain
That Piggy had a massive brain.
He worked out sums inside his head,
There was no book he hadn't read.
He knew what made an airplane fly,
He knew how engines worked and why.
He knew all this, but in the end
One question drove him round the bend:

by John Donne

Sweetest love, I do not go,
For weariness of thee,
Nor in hope the world can show
A fitter love for me;
But since that I
Must die at last, 'tis best
To use myself in jest
Thus by feign'd deaths to die.

Yesternight the sun went hence,

On Death
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The pale, the cold, and the moony smile
Which the meteor beam of a starless night
Sheds on a lonely and sea-girt isle,
Ere the dawning of morn's undoubted light,
Is the flame of life so fickle and wan
That flits round our steps till their strength is gone.

O man! hold thee on in courage of soul
Through the stormy shades of thy wordly way,
And the billows of clouds that around thee roll

weepy, faraway freak under
imaginary interrogation lights –
they sear into clandestine

she has tried so hard to keep it concealed,
but water touched by flame cannot
pretend it doesn’t boil

downcast eyes so they cannot sense

Nowhere to go
by Madeline Young

A princess in pink is chained to a fox
A peacocks bright robe hangs from a tree
The fox hold her tight, knife to neck
While towns people watch on in horror

A peacocks bright robe hangs from a tree
All the king's knights rush out from the palace
While the towns people watch on in horror
The princess is saved, but lost in despair

beautiful soul,
you deserve to be free,
yet you walk through a trench of such great misery.

and when a helping hand is drawn,
you wave it away and just keep marching on.

your heart is in shackles,
your thoughts are unclear,
when you sleep, do you dream of having no fear?

Broken home
by Amelia Pond

they broken the window frame and door.
neatly closed the gate when they where done.
they took the bottles off the shelf.
unplugged the mice from the computers, left them on the table.

the night after, every thump or sound at all made us wonder
trimmer in our beds and wonder
was it them aging? back for the rest of our most loved items.

3 weeks later, still in fear

She searches for light
by Nichole Lorah

She's awaken by fear.
Dreams become all too real.

She wakes with a scream, gasping for just one normal breath of air.
Sweat dripping down her face.
All she can hear is the sound of her heart beating in her ears.
Chest becomes heavy -- room pitch black.

Nothing to see as she reaches behind her back for her phone. She searches for just a little light.
The fears are real and jerking at her mind. As it wonders and worries it all becomes clear, she forever has to deal with the surreal.
