A Hand Reaching Out

Updated on June 19, 2013

What does her hand
Reach out for in this dark?
Sparkling lake of dreams, perhaps
Fragments of a life once lived, now
Gone.
Perhaps a gun
to shot the bloody tyrant
who kills every day evey enfant
and burns every acre of land so verdant.
Her eyes pierce the night down
In the dumps.She is
Whispering to me now“Help!Help!
Bashar No Lion is muting the cracks of the dawn
regaining what was flying from his lawn'”,her skin which was smooth porcelain
Now as white as shroud,
Death’s pale pallor, neck adorned free Syria scarf
Blossoming red stars that sparked in my vision
So beautiful, even in oblivion.

Are you with Obama's decision to send military supplies to Syria?

      Cutest Cat,

      Beatles are still my favorite band.Their music will never die.Lennon was best of the bests and so wise man.Still his words ringing in my ears:count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.

      I will keep hoping and praying and smiling too.NEVER BACK DOWN!

      Hugs and love to you too,

      James

      Oh James... that happens to be one of my most favorite songs in the world... when in the car alone and that comes on, I cry! I even have it on a hub of mine. Lennon was fighting for the same thing you are and his death was a tragedy itself.

      I will keep hoping and praying and smiling... you must too!

      Much hugs and love to you,

      Cat

      Cutest Cat,

      Yeah let s pray and hope.As John Lennon says in his song:Imagine

      Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I m a dreamer, but I m not the only one. I hope someday you ll join us, and the world will be as one.

      The real and unforgettable victories are those of peace, and not of war.Sometimes, peace starts with a smile .

      Thanks for the visit and the compliment :)

      Much hugs and love to you too!

      Dearest James,

      Some people write poetry and then there are poets, you are a poet. I am saddened when I come to these pages, but it is an important message you write about and all too many are oblivious or simply don't care. Let's hope this is not our future.

      Much hugs and love to you,

      Cat

      Minnetonka Twin,

      Thanks so much for taking out time from your busy schedule to read and comment.I really appreciate that.I like to quote here J.Kennedy :

      Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.

      Thank you for explaining your point of view . I know you are a good and decent man. I like your writes for they do provoke others to think and react to your words whether they agree or disagree. keep on writing my friend.

      Your poem speaks volumes. I wish there was no such thing as war and all of us could just live in peace. My thoughts and prayers go out to those suffering in Syria and others countries that live in war torn areas. I voted up and hit many buttons on this important poem.

      Hi Michael ,

      I am not a Syrian but I feel connected to them because they are Muslims.Quran says: 'Believers are but brothers/sisters, so set things right between your brothers/sisters and observe your duty to Allah so that you may obtain mercy'

      Surah-Hujurat (49:10)

      Muslims should treat each other as brothers and sisters. Every Muslim has a right to be taken care of, protected and respected by the other Muslims.This bond should be untainted by any worldly interests or ulterior motives.That s why you see Muslims from other countries cross the borders to join the free Syrian army.I read recently that an 18-year-old Muslim from Aurora, Illinois was arrested in Chicago airport because he wanted to go to fight alongside with what FB called al Qaeda.

      Of course,Michael,I am not defending terrorism or I am saying that only those who are Muslims are my brothers or sisters..hell no:)We are brothers too ,different backgrounds or religions don't divide us.We're unified.Arent we from one father and mother ? Many of the verses, such as "Slay them wherever you find them..." are referring to times of war, because after that it says something along the lines of "and drive them out, as they have driven you out." the extremists really twist the words of the Quran to fit their agenda.Anyway,every sociaty has its own black sheep.

      I am with Obama decision but I am afraid to say it s a little bit late.Sometimes hesitation doesnt create difference.I still remember when Bill Clinton took that historical decision alone to interfere in Bosnia to prevent Serbians committing other genocides.He was brave.For me he was the greatest president in the history of America,not only for that but also in his time the world was prospering not only USA.

      I do hate wars like you.I hope one day the whole world live in peace!

      Hi James.. i am curious as the relationship between you and syria. Are you Syrian? I thought you were from Morocco, I do not mean to disrespect your writings by any means , but your words do show that you do not agree with the presidents decision (which I do not either).

      The circumstances of what is happening in Syria is a sad situation.. as usual ,America is in a no win situation. the loss of life there is reprehensible and if I could have one wish it be for all wars to end... for the only one's for who the war ends.. for is the dead.
