Syrian woman defying violations of home


she will not leave her murdered loved ones 

and become one among many leaving

to wander dangerously aimlessly


she will not listen to the voice of fear!


Like an uncaged prisoner

like an enemy in her own land,

her future goes on darkening

being stupified by the rages of war


she truly believes

the history of her land

shall by the will of Allah be vindicated


there is no one else in the world

more courageous more proud of their country

than she


and of whose heart and soul

could ever have poured more tears

onto its woundings

than hers.  


◄ being true to the real world

and still he gets in loves way ►

There but for the grace eh JJ? on one hand it's up to us girls to stand up and be counted and on the other hand, it is up to those who have been dumb deaf and blind to our human rights for too fucking long to get up off their caveman arses and take note!

ta babe

Tommy, I don't need to tell you how difficult it is to try and pass an opinion about this horrendous war/conflict call it what you will due to its complexities regarding who is backing who and the many so-called religious factions involved plus the contradictory versions put out by the media as usual

but I certainly do go along with what you say about it being a case of pipelines and not map lines ( or lifelines that's for sure! ) petrodollars/petroroubles more like!

hence the absence of these guys in places like Myanmar no oil? no deal!

And unfortunately, when it comes to future conflicts throughout the world you can guarantee we are in for the long ride.

In the meantime, innocent victims like the fictional lady in the poem though being forced to go on trying to cling to life are doing so with unbelievable courage

Your comment appreciated TC as are the ?'s by Tom and Charlotte.

A country is lines on a map; Allah is invoked by those who have murdered her family; the killers wish to impose thier version of Mohamed and thier shape of the lines, and as a twist there's the oil.
A powerful piece Rose and you no doubt echo the fear and anger of millions of women in the Middle East.
The deities can wait as can the lines, there are more urgent demands upon them.

Well said Rose

and they have the gall to question the courage and determination of women when there are without millions like the one you have portrayed here Rose. How dare they! Thank you.Jemima.
