Shouting In Silence - Poem by Shahad Raad

I am prisoner in a dim
If my heart beats, the ribs will kill him
I am near the crater rim
Everyone antagonize me because I'm Muslim
And I am the victim of terrorism

No rays in my life gloom
Shouting, death and war zoom
My life going on in that loom

But you are wrong

We rise the culture, we rise the art
We are innovators and we are smart
extremists are not the all only a part
So, don't blame us if in mistakes somebody falls
And don't put between us and you a wall

    Shahad, I hope one day someone does listen, I hope one day someone understands, I hope one day someone realises we are all human beings, who have families and friends, who work to live. Our differences and belief's all cry for understanding, to hate because of this surely bears no love of human beings. Keep shouting to the silence, one day someone will understand. Warm regards Bob (Report)Reply
