“To be free.


Where ships set sail in the breeze on its mission,

But there’s people on board with lives that they are risking.

To be free.


This is the first verse of the poem Overseas by Toby Millis, in a series of poems written by refugees and those who work to support refugees, migrants and asylum seekers through their journey to safety and hope for a better life.
