Yassin's Poems


Where can you flee?
Which country will give shelter
To the stateless poor?
Which nation gives refuge
To a homeless foreigner?

Where do you find human beings
Living free, with dignity,
With no fear?

Dear friend and brother
Struggling to bring change,
We need real philosophy
Which affects mind and heart,
Pushes people to make a difference.

Don’t run away. Plant the earth
Until everywhere is green.
Otherwise it will be hard
For us to reach our dream.
