Change Agent Poet

“I shiver and I feel scared inside

When our family has to hide.

Hide inside the house all day

Because there might be a scary

raid.

I know they will take my

Close relative away.

These big men wearing green

I hear they have guns and are mean.

I fear I will get shot-

Or mommy too”.

Mommy says, “Hide

Under that bed-

Cover your head!

Don’t talk or move-

till I tell you what to do!”

“I can’t go to church today

That is where my family and me pray.

I pray now for my family and me-

I hope tomorrow is better than today

For now I’m scared and I afraid.”
