humans, not labels

humans, not labels,
proud, happy humans with lives,

that day,
not so far away,
laughter filled the air,
in the burning afternoon sun,
somewhere called home,
now gone,

just cold, wet misery,
the waves come crashing by,
huddled,
faceless, nameless,
driftwood,

humans, not labels,
migrants, refugees,
imposed artificial names

families,
sailing the stormy seas,
just to be like you and me.
