We are humans
I am your soul Aylan
your true humanity
I did not die with you
sinking in Bodrum‘s sea.
Who do you think washed you ashore?
Who painted your t-shirt red?
To Kos the adults took you
‘We promise home’ they said.
Who do you think will lift you now?
Who’ll cuddle you warm and true?
Who’ll bring your people safe from war?
Who’ll bury your shorts so blue?
I am your soul Aylan, your true humanity,
I did not die with you.
