Angels of hope
The streets are empty, the sun is hiding behind the smoke of dozens of explosions, the morning next to the afternoon cry after witnessing the chaos. There are angels, singing songs of love, so loud, so powerful, in all languages, across the world. These angels are poets, through their art they are begging for peace.
A child asked, what is happening, sir? The adult replied, we are fighting for our freedom, heaven and ground are the battlefields. Child, share our story, we die today, as free people.
Call for peace
It is happening again, this land is at war, people are moving, seeking shelter.
Elders fire guns, women stand to fight, families say goodbye, I understand their causes and I admire their decisions. Freedom is expensive these days, acquiring it demands rumbling sky, shooting guns, and becoming a soldier. Here I am, next to thousands of human beings, hoisting the white flag, calling for peace.
