Beyond This Place

Rank 9 Out of 10

Through the barbed wire

I look at the people burning in fire

Through the eyes that have seen too much 

Families suffer as I watch

 

Beyond this place, far away

Heaven awaits me as I pray

Mute lips, deaf ears

Seeing eyes, burning with tears

 

Behind the barbed wire I dream

Of a velvet sky with stars that gleam

Of a silent night, unbroken by

Screams that resonate through the sky

 

Beyond this place, far away

Heaven awaits me as I pray

Mute lips, deaf ears

Seeing eyes, burning with tears

 

Past the barbed wire lay my hopes

Freedom, education, endless scopes

Of imagination, love and joy

Inspiration they can never destroy

 

Beyond this place, far away

Heaven awaits me as I pray

Mute lips, deaf ears

Seeing eyes, burning with tears

 

Within this barbed wire, silently I stand

Trapped in this world, my home, my land

Yet the fire of hope burns bright within

As we stand shoulder to shoulder, brethren and kin

 

Beyond this place, far away

Heaven awaits me as I pray

Mute lips, deaf ears

Seeing eyes, burning with tears
