In My Heart by Maram Al Assi

In my heart there is a bird that his wings were cut off and he was forbidden from flying

In my heart there is a painting of hope with colours that didn’t have a full chance to be vibrant

In my heart there is a dove of peace that wishes to spread safety

In my eyes there is a dream of a bright future adorned with colours

In my ears there are bells of love and care



Dreams and desires

Restrained and forbidden from soaring into space

Forbidden by the siege

Until when are you going to stay like this?
