Dear Allah
Are you seeing all your servants who
made themselves lord of this land?
Are you seeing how easily they take the
valuable life you have given us and
snatch from us the laws of humanity you made?
I am fed up with
all the cruelty, panic, violence, and darkness
I am fed up with seeing
tears in children’s eyes
Seeing hopelessness in a family’s eyes
I am fed up with my struggles,
protests, advocacy, and fights
when our government is deaf and blind.
I am fed up with all my
dreams for peace, stability,
happiness, unity, and humanity.
