Persian Nightingale


Gaza


We don't listen to them shouting for aid
Though for our life we're so afraid

The swollen rivers their home flood
They speak in crimson accented blood

    This new poem is very good.
    There's always hope for everything.
    Although, it's good to be realistic
    when something's already done.
    There's a time to go around and get ahead
    with what you got too. (Report) Reply

    For them it is
    Fireworks
    For us
    It is
    A flow
    Of river
    In blood
    And blasts
    For them
    It is
    A news
    For us
    Any Shelter?

    Man heart has become a bleeding river
    Through broken hopes that can't deliver

    Our times are now only salty tears
    Plunged promises that no one adheres (Report) Reply

    Thank you very much...it is an expressive poem. I hope it will become more than twenty lines, but few expressive words are better than a hail of meaningless ones. (Report) Reply

    short and to the point...true, true, we will always sacrifice others before we fling ourselves into danger, such is the selfishness of modern people...war is and has always been a terrrible issue, both now and in the past...nicely written...
