One foot

One foot in front of the other he walks,
To work, to shops, to the beat of the life.
One foot in front of the other,
To collect children and newspapers, coffee and tea.
One in front of the other, quicker now, past raging bombs and exploding houses.
One in front of the other,
Collecting bodies and searching for family.
One foot to flee, one to protect.
One foot in front of the other.
One foot away from death, one foot into unwelcoming arms.

Lay some opinion on me!
