Aegean - Poem by Othman Mohammed

Aegean


I will pass Aegean dont fear
I can see the Island it is near
Tell my mom I'll be ok! !
'Don't do that please stay'.

No way to look back, just hear
Take care of my Son! ! please swear
we will reunite one day
Life will be good I should go this way

" if you drown what will I do'
Don't leave us alone please
I am in a boat now "Stop' ' No'
keep my last words just in a case
Tell my family to not cry! !
this is my will if I die.

Topic(s) of this poem: boat, family, island, refugee, sea, turkey, war

    Oh my God, this is so heartbreaking moment and if he dies, i cry....for them. This is one of most beautiful emotional writing of refugees and war i ever read that begging my eyes to tears, i hold it because i hope the man survived and they going to reunite with whole family, and to make his mother feel relief. What i really admire of that man spirit is, he knows that he must make it to give other better life..and life is what he gambled. If this is a real story...Oh Lord, keep them safe, salute to the man of his still heart for future..not himself but others! . Keep it up to write quality poem Othman. (Report)Reply
