Salvation

written by: Khalid Belkhalfi

 

My eyes were closed
and I was standing on a cliff
I was scared to fall into the mist
and my body was stiff
I couldn't make quiet
the voices in my head
And I was losing my mind
and my blood was being shed...

Suddenly, I started falling
but I was not alone
People shouting,
from every height, they were thrown
Who brought us in here,
did we do something wrong?
If we should disappear
who’s willing to sing our song?

We are the guardians of freedom
the preachers of hope
We irrigate broken hearts
with our tears drop by drop
We ease sufferings with smiles
and we heal the hunger
Now we are being irradiated
by something stronger...

Which evil force does not want to see
love spreading?
Watching us bleeding
and preventing our grains from seeding?
Peaceful wings of love
in our bodies are growing
And on the winds of change
like birds, we are flying...

Our lights
will guide generations to glory
And under the shining sun
they will tell our story
Then I opened my eyes and saw
all the pretty lights
I've had a horrible dream
like all the other nights...

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

Let no woman suffer..
