WHO IS THERE ? 

 

Oh human

Can’t you see!

I am precisely like you

I don’t like being humiliated

I am no one’s doormat

I’m person in my own right

 

When I was born

I was born innocent

Happy and free

And I want to live

A normal life

With dignity

Wouldn’t you?

I realise there is a dawn

Waiting to be born

And that… after hardship… passes away

Ease will come to life… very soon

But… they’ve inflicted so much

Pain and cruelty

Upon this little girl

And upon her homeland

 

The world is watching

Eyes open wide

In bewilderment

And disbelief

“What we are watching

Is a fiction movie

It’s not really true”

 

While in exile

Puzzled… I agonize

Wiping tears off my saddened face

Searching around

Any one there?

 

Looking up… into sky

Did You hear my cries?

Did You witness the crime?

 

Suddenly

Knock… knock

A gentle tap

Yes, coming

 

 

Who is there?

Hope is here

 Smiling at my heart

Standing by my door

  1. Poignant!  Thank you for your comment – it is unbelievable what is going on in our world – surely someone will rise from the ashes to try to recover some dignity for humanity?  Ah but I fear it is all too late.  Like your new look to your site and enjoyed the photographs from York – it is my intention one day to visit there – maybe later this year or next year.  Have a lovely weekend – I am off again next week so you can expect some more pictures 🙂 xx
