Let Syria Live... (Poem)

User Rating:  / 4

By: Umm e Shafia


Humanity, justice, kindness
Everyone talks about
Equality, brotherhood, peace
Each one, all of them shout
But oppression, blood, tears
This is what we have seen
Wrapped in helplessness
For years we have been
Victims of war and destruction
Cruelty, torture and oppression
Civilized pilots drop bombs
On us while wildly laughing
Tyrants now trying to kill us
 By acts like food-blocking
The behaviour of oppressors
 Is truly brutal and shocking
For years on door of humanity,
We’ve been constantly knocking
What is the Muslim world doing?
Just gossiping and talking
Take what you want from us
We will give
But it’s a plea from me, a Syrian child
