Tonight, I was inspired by seeing how the world ignore our suffering from this war which wagged on my country by the richest nations in the world.Far from the watchful eye of the world’s media, war is ravaging Yemen, killing thousands of civilians, and starving and displacing millions more.
But, the world has to realize that Yemeni people will never kneel on their knees to beg for mercy and plea for pity. This is the way we die, with our heads held high.
By all those thoughts, I wrote this poem.
Silence Is A War Crime
We are alone.
No one listens to our groan.
In a world as hard and gray as stone.
No one about our lives cares.
No soul of our sufferings shares.
Nobody to support us dares.
No one to our grievance hears.
Fears we never have shown.
Our kids life of cries and tears.
Of war years and dark fears.
To none but God is known.
Suffering in silence.
Facing the world in defiance.
No more on you we’re reliance.
For you’re hand in hand with our tyrants.
Our bloods slake our land.
The sea, the desert and the sand.
We’ve dug in deep, made our stand.
We will never kiss your hand.
Bravery is our invention brand.
There’s still something that you must understand.
No foreigner shall dominate over our homeland.
