How come the sky
all on a sudden turns so sunny bright
where every day is chopped,
hacked and burnt;
where people feed on bombs;
where broken walls of schools
bear black bloodstains;
where rowdy nights
in a miasma of rotting humanness
smirk in malicious delight;
where tattered souls
still breathe a yearning
for a drop of peace on their tired tongue?
Oh why not?
For angels of valor have come out on streets;
pulling out the sun
from the debris of despair;
healing the air with the song of hope;
creating waves of love to spread across the world
while fluttering their invisible wings and glistening in smile.
[I must say Sherry’s poem Children of Syria overwhelmed me and also the video attached with the poem. I wished to include the video in my blog too but my WordPress blog would not let me. Brrrr]
