The flowers of peace
by Saja Abdou
Age 11 – 14
From the rose garden in my heart
I picked the flowers of peace,
With their essence I write this letter seeking safety.
And from my balcony I send it to the moon with love,
So that the drums of hope roll in the human heart
And the stories of the dark nights become a mere past
And these times end in the coronation of peace, king of the universes.
