All Over Again

Salam,

this was written in a couple of minutes, it could be better but I didn't want to edit it.

Years later,

She sat in a caravan

Through that very same desert

It hadn’t changed

There Ruqaya fell

There Sukayna wept

There Ali prayed, hands bound with rope

And through that very street….

She shivered, and let out a gasp

The clanking of chains echoed somewhere

Silver spears flickered across her memories

No, stop

No, she mustn’t think about that

Never again

Suddenly she was weeping

Tears fell uncontrollably

And she let out a painful sob

It was too much

It was just too much

Then it was over.

She was gone.

She died in Syria.

The scent of hussain on her veil

The cries of the children ringing in her ears

Peace be upon you, oh Zainab.

This poem is painful to read and had me at every line.

Love it, sis.
