I caught a line in your eyes

I caught a line in your eyes
weaving the endless
strings of destiny
to carry dreams
of children
spat out
by waters of indifference
to the shores of denials

Dreams vanished
in the pure light
of an unfulfilled life
a fruitless tree
healthy
yet lifeless
cut
from its roots

Sleep as deep
as the deepest sea
sunk
whirling
away
with cries of desperation
never
to know
the light

the echo hears
thumping of hearts
silence is harsh
satirically
laughing
at the small bodies
the evaporating traditions
in the smoke
of an extinguished fire

    Beautiful and sad… Sad is the refugees’ situation. Sad is most people’s indifference…

    If people truly want to help, they have to pressure their governments to end wars in the Middle East, not only be compassionate online and helping refugees in Europe. European governments must stop financing war.
