Aleppo’s Tears

by Ershad Khan~

~

It’s getting dark and cold

But she’s running again,

There is no time to wait

When misery unfolds….

~

From street to street

Block to block

They bombed and shattered shelters

Brick by brick.

~

Where will she run now?

With her innocent kid

He’s tired and hungry

He can barely breathe!

~

No trace of her husband

And her angelic daughter

Aleppo has turned into

A land of slaughter!

~

A whole generation

Bombed, shelled,

Tortured and raped

I gently change my TV channel

Watch something else instead.

  ~

Their unspeakable misery is

Happening in a distant shore…

  ~

Aleppo’s Tears

Don’t reach my door !
