Aleutian Sparrow Free Verse Poem

changes overnight, never the fault of those who suffered
exiles in a land where they were supposed to be free
desperate for home, freedom, and their lives
sick of living like an inferior, a criminal
trapped in a war not started by those who suffered
two years of torture, sickness, and unfairness
no life to return to
where am i?
who am i?
return to a home that is no longer there
no freedom
no justice
just war.
