Yassin's Poems


After the sun rises
It sets and disappears.

Night brings the darkness
But the dawn returns.

How long will Life’s Journey take?
Certainly it comes to an end.
No matter how hard the suffering and pain,
One day it will be over.

Like a kiss to your beloved’s cheek,
Soon that sweetness will be gone.

But really it is impossible
To separate me from the Land.
What can they do?
If they kill me
I will return,
Becoming dust,
Hugging the Land forever.
