We once had a home
To call our own,
With friends and loved ones
now thousand miles away
We sobbed and cried as we tell good bye
for those precious momement can hardly come by.
Living a beautiful life was our hope
so we dreamt of moving to europe
With a possibility as thin as a rope.
Our carreers and family we forsake
Just for europe sake.
Through borders and desert we strive.
With a drop of water to keep alive
we were like a sheep without a manger
Knowing that every second of our lives was in danger
Forced to work without pay and if you dare, they pull the trigger
In this modern day we became slaves
some wish for nothing but the grave
Just like in the days when people lived in caves.
In a war zone we became stuck
we made up our minds and say no turning back
Our hearts were prepared for any attack
For we knew that living to see another day depends on luck
With all the tribulations frustrations and humiliations
Our girls forced into prostitution
yet we never gave up on our missions
To make europe our final destination
Our rough days and sleepless nights were full of dreams of a fairytale
we hope to make it to Italy, France and Germany
And finally have a chance to live in peace and harmony.
In plastic boats we were chocked up as much as they can
Just like fishes in a sardine can
Irrespective of our religions we prayed for God's mercy
For it was only by his power that we made through that great sea.
A true Hero is what you are
We may not be recognized but that's what we are.
