They took my mother, my brother, my sister and me
And took us to a place that no one else could see.
The nights were dark and cold
Although we were together as a family, I still felt alone.
They want us to be strong soilders, yet they beat us,
They hardly ever feed us.
I'm scared, and I want to go home
Although we are here together as a family, I still feel alone.
My mom and sister got taken away from me today,
I really hope they're going to be okay.
Now all I have left is my brother,
I wouldn't want to be with any other, but I still feel alone.
My brother and his friends tried to escape today,
Because of that, the soilders took him away.
He left me here as a stray, and now I am all alone.
The prisoners of the camp are now my only family,
We have all gone through the same tragedy.
Although my real family is gone, and I am here alone,
I feel like this is my new home.
