The People In The Container

Loved ones, on a journey, 
to a better life, they seek.
Spent many hours, days, weeks,
smuggling their wildest dreams,
in the back of a steel box.

The pressure, in hiding, 
in metal containers.
We are inside, I echo,
there are barely words available. 

1.40 this morning,
39 loved ones, have gone 
To a better, beyond.

It is with a sore heart, 
a raw nerve,
I echo the words, 
we hope.

Nobody leaves their home, on a whim.
