The world is so big
Some people are living the good life happily
And don't know anything about the other side of the world where people are dying and having the tough life.
I am one of those people
I had to leave my friends, family and my home behind me
I made the biggest decision so far in my life to cross borders and I don't know if I will arrive safely or not
It was all I took for a life that I can live in peace
and have a bright future.
One with no war
With no bombing
With no discrimination
That is what I am looking for
Life is not easy at all
Even though we struggle, I try my best to keep that smile on me
and keep the people around me happy
