The Children of Syria: An Unfinished Dream

Mansoureh Nasserchian \

Sorry for just watching

your petrified picture, Omran!

It is not my fault that I can do nothing;

It is not your fault to be petrified!

The Middle East is a playground

for warmongers, oil-lovers, ammunition dealers,

and local dictators who betray

their own people, sometimes along Western

and some other times Eastern superpowers.

You, Omran, remained in Aleppo

to be petrified, in such cruel times,

in an orange chair

for the world to watch in silence!

Aylan Kurdi escaped to be drowned

And now his picture makes gains

for some!

Neither you nor Aylan have any rights

over your homeland!

Humanity should be in its infancy

To silently watch the children of Syria:

An unfinished dream!
