Yassin's Poems


The war’s tongue––
Besides destruction,
What can it say?

In the enemy farm,
Which seed is able to grow
Other than hate?

To change this situation
We must do something
For the next generation––
The first step, bringing up
Our beloved children
To love, respect, and never do harm
To the planet or any beings

Then they will live
In real peace
And they will see
Life’s real beauty
They will care for each other
And enjoy living together
Like they are brothers.
