A poem by Jodie Fairhall, age 12.


Pushed, mashed and shoved

Fear of the unknown

Surrounded by hundreds

Yet still I feel alone

Me and mom were seperated

I cried a dozen tears

My heart ripped into pieces

And rebuilt with lots of fears

It stopped finally

But then they shaved my hair

They violently beat us

Left us with stripes too wear

Feeling scared and lost

Trapped behind wires

They said we’d be out soon

Those cold, cold liars

Our rights violated

No speech, not free

Held captive for life

Why me? why me?

Living on scaps

Im filled with hunger

No energy to cry

Just to sit and slumber

Feeling weak and sick

Slowly losing power

Got to go now

Its time for a shower
