Because It Is The Middle East

Poem By Fasika Ayalew

They are simply words
World peace human right
They are mere utterance
Now who spoke for them?
For the little kids cries
Who stood for their remorse?
Where are the activists
Where are the great leaders?
Still having a peace conference?
What are they discussing?
Dressed elegantly in their black suit
Do they stand for the kids under the black soot?
Ah! Human right...
Regardless of who they are…they are children
Never agreed to see this blaze of fire
Never agreed to be who they are today
When horror was all over the faces of those kids
Who cared to wipe away their endless tears?
But taken, gone by their ceaseless cries
“Children first” was simply an utterance.
You know why because it is the Middle East
Where life falls like autumn leaves.
A place where by design and default
People lives are regarded as short
And nobody cares
Because it is the Middle East

“Children first” was simply an utterance. You know why because it is the Middle East Where life falls like autumn leaves. A place where by design and default People lives are regarded as short beautiful lines...heart felt and deeply touching.... sat

Oh this is really impressive.......... Very good questions to be asked from polititians, or from the pioneers of 'DEMOCRACY' / 'HUMAN RIGHTS. Robbers who theft African, Asian and American Continents 2-6 centuries ago, now have become Pioneers of world Democracy. Dump their excess crops into the ocean... despite of millions stay in starvation. This reality is understood by only a few.
'And nobody cares Because it is the Middle East' a very beautiful poem,10 for it.
A real cry of desperation.There is no waiting for some else to bring justice, equality and freedom if a person has the courage to bring it about starting within their own mind.Ever hear the reggae tune Promised Land? You can find it on youtube.com.Very thought provoking poem.

**musical Notes Of Life **

The sun peeks through the horizon
In the wake of another day
As heart drums, breathe waves
Vibrations inside veins

*shining Lantern*

I bright the darkness
I am a lantern
A feeble light I am
Without my enclosure

**please Wake Up...**

With a gentle touch and a move slow
A light streamed through my window
Taking a twinkling steps
The ray danced upon my face

*what If…*

Just a thought
An idea escape
Bang, bang
Knocking the head

! ! Rocking Lullaby! !

A lullaby as silence sings
Back and fourth the soul swings
Caressing and with gentle embrace
A lullaby as silence plays
