Mary and Mayada


My tears fell
From my eyes when
I saw Mary’s face and words
On Twitter,
As tears fell for young
Mayada
Whose last words were asking
God or Allah
To surround her gently
With His loving hand.

I am a woman from makkah-
The Centre of Islam-
Who cries for an innocent
Young Christian Egyptian
Girl savagely killed,
For nothing except being
Different and from another
Religion. If God wished
He could have created
Us like angels, who differ
Not in religion. But God
Wished human beings
To be different in colour,
Religion and many other
Things concerning taste,
Size and language,
So says the Qur’an.

My sadness was doubled
And tears fill
As heavy as rain for
Innocent young
Women killed under
The name of religion;
What a double crime!

Mr. Sameh, Mary's father
Says that he
Forgives, because his
Religion wants him
To do so, well we
Muslims don’t forgive
Criminals and killers
Who frighten, abuse
Or kill others, in particular
Those who rudely justify
Their evil deeds by
Their love for God or Allah.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
