Syria Cry


Syria cry
we cry
the cry of birds
all birds aborted and deported from their nests
pray to the sky
because demons drink the blood of children
to live another day
and the whole world
does not know how to die
but knows how to lie and why

    gut wrenching sights brought to life....
    the little bundles carried with red splotches would make any one cry....

    May God have mercy on the land of prophets....

    nice touching lines

    If criminals have little faith
    will never kill any one...
    There is nothing in our hand we can...
    Except to unite as poets
    and vanish the heartless politicians...
    Who enjoy provocation by using guns...! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
