Poem By Nasra Al Adawi

Writing a letter
It was only written to my father
He taught me that a letter is the bridge

Between distance and longing for the loved one

A communicable tool that reaches out your thoughts to someone

Indeed his letter reached out to me

His written words spoke so clearly

Now I find my post box is empty

My father is gone

I’m feeling blank, so lonely without him

His letter triggered wonderful anticipation

It was all I had with him

His poetic letters

Gazing into the light that is so far
Adapting with the darkness in fear of the unknown

Screams continues, into a shallow silence
Distorted faces searching for survivors
Scattered bodies in an aftermath the massacred of nature
Some the earth had swallowed, some drifted by oceanic water

Im A Down Syndrome Child

No one else but me
Had been stared at
Like a starnger on earth
They look at me worried and afraid
