Syria's War

Syria's War

A Poem by khalid

if the killer knows the feelings of the killed, he would never think of killing him..



From the victim to the murderer in Syria

Kill me in cold blood

With your hands, let my blood be shed

But, my murderer..oh! my old friend!

Before I die, may I ask you for one last thing?

After you kill me, check my blood

Then while, I am dead,

And you are on my grave,

Crying, shivering and feeling regret.

Tell me then, how you found it

Isn’t it, Arab Syrian blood?

Isn’t it the same as..your own blood?


من المقتول إلى القاتل بسوريا:

اقتلني بكل دم بارد

وليتصدر الحدث عناوين الأخبار

ولتكن بالتلفا�™ صورنا أهم المشاهد

وليقولوا عنك أنك بطل مغوار

فليكن دمي المسال على يديك خير شاهد

عجبا, يا لسهولة اتخاذك للقرار!

أتقتلني لاختلاف بالعقائد والمذاهب؟

لقرون عشنا سويا  نراعي حق الجوار

أتذكر حين كنت لي خير جار وأع�™ صاحب؟

أنت لا تنصت لي

وأنا..لم يعد يهمني

هيا إذا.. أسفك دمي

لكن.. اعلم أنني..

لست الوحيد الخاسر

فدمك في عروقي يسري

 ولدم السوري.. في عروقنا واحد

beautiful sad poem....
war is always so terrible, horrible... in wars the ones that die are the innocents... I hate all wars... I which human kind was much more developed and not yet in this pres-historic state of killing each other and the Earth...

these are heinous acts someone can do to their own people. it is sad what is going on there. i believe that person (president? sorry, i don't know much details...) should be taken out or made to suffer in prison for the rest of their life. it is so cruel to kill innocent people who are of your own blood just out of the blue. your poem makes a profound statement.

Thank you for your thoughts on a important topic. I believe the Middle East is older and wiser. Don't need the USA to add to the confusion. I pray for peace and calm. Too many had died already. I wish the Arabic countries would gather as one and demand the USA and other world powers to leave the region alone. Oil and greed bring the devil to where the profit is. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

Very heavy poetry my friend, makes my heart hurt to read it and gave me chills, there is no sanctifying the reasons behind war....compelling read albeit ever so torturous. Well done.

Wow Khalid this piece is really nice.
As an Arab i truly understand how sad the situation is these days.
We tend to forget that we share the same blood.. thankyou for the reminder..

There is a different kind of wisdom in the last words of the soldier yearning for death here. Good job.
