ALEPPO

2

Aleppo!
We
still hear your cries.
Throughout
the days and nights;
As
the oppressors molested your daughters and wives,
And
the rotten flesh left paraded with flies.
Aleppo!
All
I See is troops of orphans,
As
they killed their parents, and left many with half arms.
Dead
bodies with exposed internal organs.
They
emptied your homes and tagged you losers.

 
Aleppo!

Can
you hear those sounds?
Can
you see any children at their playgrounds?
All
I can hear is wailing from their compounds.
And
lands turned into a battleground.
Aleppo!
I
can see the depressed mothers
Crying
over their loved ones who had just been murdered.
And
aggrieved fathers,
Over
their lost sons and daughters.
Aleppo!
Those
peaceful days will soon arrive,
I
see so much pain, yet you choose to survive.
The
joy the oppressors think you can be deprived of;
Aleppo,
peaceful days will arrive.
