One family shares their path west to freedom and safety. Telling the story of coming together to complete the journey becomes their main purpose.

Bitter Journey

Lyrics

There was moonlight
On the river Meriç
Shallow but dangerous
It can swallow you
Looks calm but deep down
Stepping in the boat
Be so silent
And invisible

Our main purpose
Was to be together

We want to to be the voice of the others
We are so thankful for our freedom
We’re just so glad
We are together
We are together

Our daughter woke up
She felt our stress
He pushed me in the water
I was in the mud
Screaming “Help me!”
The shaking of her chin
We won’t forget that
Forever

Calm down, it’s over
We just passed the river

We want to be the voice of the others…

The struggle in front of us
It can be hard
Not harder than the journey
New languages, new jobs
Sacrificing our past life
Is worth our freedom

We want to be the voice of the others…

“One of the policemen comes
And pushes the potato cases
I resist against the cases
I silence my children
Thank god, they don’t find us”
