You will cry...

Mother dear, I've come to you

by aqsamustafa

Mother nature is sad...

No, no, don't get me wrong. She's still as beautiful as ever

There are still flowers blooming in her hair and birds chirping on her palms. The sun and sky still clash on her brow, and sweet spring breezes still waft past her lips.

But...

A little boy sat across, weaving for her a tale...

A tale of fire and shadow, Of haunting cries and despair.

Of empty, vacant eyes, In a city now not fair.

A tale of mothers asking, To any who might hear,

"Have you seen my little girl? Lost is the sweet, sweet dear."

A tale of ash and smoke he told, Of little pleading cries.

Of his papa's one last kiss, And his own last goodbyes.

"Mother dear, do you know," he said, "A people I have seen,

Waking up to noises harsh, Sleeping where no one's been."

"It's harsh," he said, "it's sad," he said, "As to why I have no clue,

Mother dear, sweet mother dear, That's why I've come to you

@erenah same here... and kashmir and Palestine and Yemen.... but one does hope for something more than prayers, right?

This was eloquently written, but unavoidably harrowing. I continue to pray for Syria.

@bernardtwindwil Thank u so much for those understanding words. At first i was unsure if i should do this or not, but somehow the idea just wont leave...I guess the only thing people can do is what each of us does best. A writer must write about it, a painter must paint and a singer must sing... what we must not do is stay silent! For six years we have. How much longer?

Thank you for bringing these poignant and horrific photos to the commaful community's attention. I am personally at a loss as what can happen to ameliorated the suffering. I am no stranger to the slaughter of children and other innocents. I did not vote for Trump. But as a human being, I do not feel that is enough. We must do more besides sit on our overfed asses in our comfortable houses. Sad but great post!!!!!
