In the dark, I sit where the site of distress is bliss, my thoughts are cadacomn cliffs and I teeterVoices of responsibility ring out bleakly, my eyes can’t close upMy brain won’t free meIt’s 2020Million eyes still cryingThose that never sinnedThe street lights are all flickeringWhilst, innocent souls on streetsHungry and hopeless from a broken lifeAngry, with their fists clenchedThey have always watched us from behind curtainsNot concerned about what they seeWith their hot drinks beside themWishing it’s never themA desperate stranger watched from a distanceWe are treated as foolsBelongings strewn across pavementsWhere do we go?We are treated as worthless human beingsAs if our lives don’t matterDown on the darkened streets, we are Thousands!Our souls are largely overwhelmed!😢😭Sincerely;The overwhelmed souls!

It is Xmas day. Two nights ago, while asleep for the first time in their new shelters at Kakuma Kenya, LGBTI refugees were attacked with sticks and fists. Terrified they were about to be killed, some ran for the bushes and others risked camping outside the Reception Center in the hope that they may finally receive some real protection and security.
