"While the world faces incomprehensible numbers and statistics created by the refugee crisis the tragedy and story of a single soul gets missed. It was difficult to stand by just watching this tragedy without trying to do something. I simply decided to help humanize the narrative and lend my voice to the call for keeping hearts and doors open to every refugee, especially youngsters, who have lost what future they might have once hoped for."

Yusuf Cat Stevens

HE WAS ALONE (Lyrics):

He was alone,
When he was twelve,
Only his thoughts, which he kept to himself

He didn’t have, a place to play
A friend to call, or a word to say

But he had hope,
That one day he’d fly
Over the rainbow, up through the sky

He was alone,
He didn’t have much
And all that he had, he couldn’t touch

He lay awake,
All night through
This was his world, no one else knew,
Nothing to fear,
Nothing to hide,
Nothing but stars, to care as he cried

But he had hope,
That one day he’d own
A flashing (white) horse, to carry him home

And in his hand he felt a stone,
That’s all he had, and he was alone

But he had wish,
That one day he’d fly
Over the wall, up to the sky

He was just one,
Who never grew old,
On a list of names, upon the road
