Protest poem against the war in Syria

‘Letter to Syria’

 

The innocents in Syria,

Darkness consumes their lives

Fear transporting their hearts,

Into a long goodnight

 

Wrapped in shrouds of grief,

Dying by merciless command

Posterity’s judgement’s can wait

As ceaseless aggression stalks the land

 

Who can calm the storm?

Will their children’s children know?

The testimony of the vanquished

As grace and humanity takes flight

 

Yet an idea once born cannot die,

For liberty and justice will be

Truth in the hearts of victims,

A flame  for victory

It's easy for us to speak out from our distant observation point and make claims.

I would only ask you to examine the American Civil War. Two sides determined to eliminate each other. One side with the president with all the resources to vanquish the other. The other side wishing to maintain its paternalistic ideal lifestyle based on slave labor.

I would also ask you to look at the French Revolution. When the people have had enough of autocracy and dictatorial slavery to power, all they ask is to break free to live the way they see Americans living in a far-off land. (We still are free in spite of what many think).

I think the inevitable is that the powerful and dictatorial lose in the end, if the resistors had taken a nonviolent approach (they did in the beginning with demonstrations that were put down with lethal force) throughout, they would get to their goal sooner. Think of Gandhi and Martin Luther King.
