Letter To A Syrian Rebel


You faceless freedom fighter
After these long months
Of tempestuous battles
In Syrian suburbs
Have you lost sight of your task
The ousting of tyranny
From each nook of your nation
Has this deranged civil war
Kindles disillusionment
Of your original goal?
Has all that gruesome violence
And Assad's selfish resolve
Left you without any hope
Of achieving anything
That would be of noble worth?
Has glory become your goal
For the sake of your own good?
Return to the war's first days,
Rekindle the ambition
That once burned within your heart.
