ODE TO RAYAN AND THE CHILDREN
Humanity, why, in our present age,
must one more child be silenced by rage?
We've waited so long for love!
We've wept more than enough!
God, bring down your thunder upon damnable war!
Bring your lightening and silence its roar!
Now! Now! Now begin!
We're ready to love!
Bring your wind!
We've imagined you long enough!
