“All must cross the border to safety” heard an order,
After all, I fail to understand what a border is
I intent not to widen any border…nor
I intent to fence it with spikes of enemity.
I have not seen any border drawn…
I see the same sky and earth everywhere!
Don’t separate me from my father
As I am afraid of the deafening siren,
A siren which dropped fire winged angel of death…
As the fire winged angel vanished my mom
My father was the one took us under his wings.
Don’t pull my infant brother from my father
As he is secured in the warmth of his chest.
Don’t destroy my home we built in the garden of love
As we use to cuddle and sleep together.
Don’t give weapons in my father’s hand
As he intent not to hurt, but to hug.
Don’t send him to the war front
As we are unaware…who is warring against whom?
Don’t order him to kill
As he taught us not to kill but love…
“Do not kill but love one another” is His teaching…
A universal teaching though languages vary!
Drop your weapon lest you will be killed with it.
I am abandoned and scared with my sibling on my back…
Who is silently pleading for a better place to live?
Let the earth be without borders and boundaries…
Let all the lethal weapons perish in the
ardent fire of LOVE.
