‘Children of Homs’~by Mary Cecil


 

 

‘Children of Homs’

Humanity is broken in Syria,
Despair is burying them deep
The lost little children in Homs,
Crying with fear as we sleep

No sunlight, no food, nor joy,
Shattered and shelled all around
Huddled and weeping together,
Living like rats underground

Hope taking flight as they cry,
Ground into dust their fate
Blown like flies in the sun,
Dying on a carcass of a state

Voices in valleys of bodies,
Souls that lie slain and burned
Forests of forms ticked and listed
Marked out for inaction returned

Victims of greed and oppression,
Slaves to retention of power
Suffer the little children,
By month, by day and by hour
