Aylan: Remember me!

Look at me!

Here I am...

Floating through the sea,

Finally made it on your shore,

Resting my petite body

Face down, but not tired anymore.

Stare at me!

Longer than you plan to see

My discomforting image

That you would rather abhor,

Yet I sailed on hope and faith

To find your promising open door.

Embrace me!

Before it's too late to care,

Before your conscience shuts down

And the guilt you won't bear.

Remember me!

On a calm, serene day,

I was your humanity....

That you just let slip away.
