Migrant Tales literary: How high must a wall be to contain hope?
Dedicated to the EU and Donald Trump
By Leo Honka
No wall can contain hope.
It’s a fact but go and build your high wall
To hide the destruction you’ve reaped:
pillaging riches, pillaging hope
leaving people and whole nations
devastated, without future.
Now we’re knocking on your door
With a sentence in the form of a key:
Let us in!
No matter how high the walls you build
so you can’t see us
you always will.
Don’t fool yourself
high walls can never contain hope – and our despair.
