A Conversation With The Star of Dreams by Maram Al Esi

I looked at the stars at night

I saw them covered with a robe of diamonds

Composing the word Peace

I asked them: What is the meaning of Peace?

They answered: No war, no fear, no killing and no destruction.

I wondered: Is this peace? Why can’t I find it in my country?

They replied: Because the greed of humankind made them forget about love and respect.

I said to them: Help me to tell Humanity about the real meaning of peace.

The star of dreams agreed, and here I am trying to turn the word of peace into deeds in the world of wars and destructions.
