Sky Heavy With Worry

sky heavy with worry

sun looks shamefully

heavens cry

tears are dropping

one by one


warning of disaster

of another attack

a wild attack

a molest attack

in our land


to the wounded land

to the land, facing decades of fighting

to the city battered by hail of rockets

to the cities rises the smell of blood


but the eyes are blind

the ears are deaf

the hearts ignored cries

cry of people


people cry

bodies’ pieces fly through the air

hundreds wounded

many dead


shouting everywhere

cities tremble

with fear

with pain


the air echoes

bomb blast


cries everywhere


another suicide bomb

another suicide bomb

Kabul city defeated once more

its wounds became fresh once again


the wounded land, shed tears

the wounded city, cry
