Refugee Week – I am Somebody

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football is the best,
But only for the rest,
If only the best could somehow include me,
Time after time the other kids reject me,
Why is it this way?
I too want to play,
Someone please pick me,
I want to be in your team,
Lonely as I am and in need
Of a team or just one new friend,
So someone please pick me,
As I am somebody.

Notes

Thoughts on how it must feel to arrive in a new country and watch kids playing at break and not able to communicate.
