For Them-

For Them-

image.jpeg

For the kids with stone as their weapon,
The sky as their roof;
Bloodshed a daily occurrence,
Freedom to live besieged;
For the kids whose tears fall unnoticed,
Voices hoarse from cries;
Struck from every angle,
Their innocence dimming.

For the mother who buries lifeless bodies,
Of children she’s outliving;
One whose milk has dried from hunger,
While her newborn is weeping;
For the ones who dread the sun at daybreak,
For the onslaught it brings forth;
I say, is it worth it fighting-
The ones with stone as their weapon.

  1. sigh…thank you for sharing this sad story…we take so much for granted in life and this makes me appreciate more the freedoms I have…my heart goes out to children who have to experience the ravages of war.

  2. Long Live Syria, May the Greatest Supreme of The Skies and Earths have mercy on the Syrian children and all the children stuck in conflicts across this world. Ameena, this made me cry because I have worked in Damascus and I cannot begin to explain how heart broken I am at this today’s state!

    1. Hahaha, me too! Sometimes, I go out of my way to avoid reading such news because of the sadness. It is heartbreaking to see their plights and there isn’t much one can do about it.
