War

War

Life is God’s gift –
Not anymore!
The beheading of a young body here and there
Spirits ruined, bodies ​​shocked, souls separated

Me and Others

Me and Others

Under my control are my heart, my feelings,
my wants, and I choose to be compassionate.
Yet suffering and sickness are human too—
Lying, cheating, selfishness, hatred.

Snow

Snow

A teenager, I thought I had a green life ahead.
But when I became a mother, I lost my life partner to war.
That day, a cold snow spread all over my body.

She thought she’d spend her life serving him
Her four children sometimes full, sometimes hungry
She thought just be nice and obey.
