I Am Angry! - Poem by Halima Ahmed
I am angry at the lack of government in my land,
Angry at the fact that it is been two decades too late to fix things,
Mad at the ignorance of my people,
Outraged at the way my deen is misused,
Disappointed at reality of my beloved country,
Helpless at the young men being recruited,
How many more will be persuaded to kill?
fight their people?
blow up themselves?
How many more mothers have to see the death of their children?
Wasn’t forcing them to beg for shelter elsewhere enough?
Tonight as I read news about Somalia,
More children dying of hunger,
More mothers crying at their misery,
Tears drop…tears drop, and they dropp again
yet another night I sleep with anger, sadness, helplessness and frustration over the conditions my land.
When will we stop preying on Somalia like vultures?
