Somalia, my once beautiful country, has become a death trap. Anyone living there is ready for unexpected death at any moment. This trend of chaos and insecurity has been going on for the past 17 years and it is currently at its peak in Mogadishu, the Capital City. More than 150 people have been killed in the last three days and there were massive casualties to civilians in the city. My people are faced with Death, injury, anguish, displacement and all types of insecurity. I have no option but to pray and ask Allah the Almighty to restore peace in my country.




 

 


My helpless country

Suffers from agony

In vicious cycles

Useless politicking

Ruthless attacking

Endless killing

               Meaningless fleeing


Merciless suffering

Oh God of happiness

End our unhappiness!

 

Amen.

I pray more of your people will become educated so that they can make better choices, and also there will be more leaders from which to choose. Thank you for sharing Jibril! I hope your tears will turn to gladness soon!

I feel your pain my good poet, you are a positive good brother. I too, feel for your country, I can't stand seeing the little children suffering. But you know something, it's evil men and money that keeps this going on. There are certain elements in this country and some others that do not want to see a united africa. Unity means an end to ripping off the riches of a strong black country. It's easier to conquer when a country is kept in fear and turmoil. the movie
Blood Diamond told part of this story. All down through the ages africa has been exploited and used. It will only end when strong africans and others in the world stand up against the thugs, black and white

Those that received Nobel Prize for Peace... (U.N. Members) like Mr. Former Secretary, and all the FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF UN SECURITY COUNCIL ~ the industrial war LORDS. I gues that the average adult person of this planet knows the history.

No God or faked prophet can do anything, but the people can. WHY IS THAT THAT SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT OF THAT COUNTRY IS MUSLIM ~ THREE TO ONE ~ GREAT MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE, can't say NO to those criminals?

I question the responsibility of VATICAN, CANTERBURY, MUSLIM LEADERS, AND THE FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL. I ALSO QUESTION THEIR DIGNITY AND HUMANITY.

Justice is the only way. Stand up and say NO to those criminals.

Only totally crazy people thinks that war is the solution.
Only those that had abandoned his God's teaching resort to the slaughter of innocents.
War is an aberration that have no place in the life of intelligent men
My heart aches with yours.
Salam Aleikum

What a sad poem! Your voice is a power for the powerless. Please raise it till those who live behind sound-proof doors hear it. Thanks Abdullahi for the message. You are a real activist of peace
Reviewed by Edwin Larson 4/2/2007
Political manipulation of God for greed and power are the cause. God won't stop this, only your people can. Regretably, international aid has proven over and over to be a useless bandaid that can't cover a much deeper wound. Power is continually and willfully given over by the people to warlords and profiteers of thier own doom. Until the people organize and empower themselves against tyranny this 'genocide' or 'cleansing' is doomed to repeat itself...How long has it been going on now???!!! It's a sad situation that many, including myself, would like to end now and forever.

Dearest Abdullahi
Our love and hearts go to you and your countrypeople.
It is a crime such atrocities are happening when the majority of the Western world live in apparent freedom.
All freedom is linked and if you haven't got it, neither have we.
Humans are One ... when will we know: to hurt another is to hurt oneself. Those massacrers must be so full of self-hatred.
And many of us have the heedlessness of complacency, as this goes on around the world, and in your very own home.
Love to you, deeply. Be safe as you can, and know you have many supporters.

I am wiping tears from my eyes as I write this. I visited a few Somali news web pages. What I saw was ver sad and heart breaking. Thank you all of you, friendly authors at the den for your encouragement. I keep writing even when time is a scarce commodity for me. It is all because of you. Thank you all of you, sisters and brothers.
