For Rana Al Fayouni by Maile Capper

They did say:

Wait for a few days and the light will come,

But the years and days you wasted

Have not led to light.


You are the ones that can break the chains

Preserving the happiness from your hearts and lives,

And change the monsters that imprisoned you

Into life like angels.

It will change and be happiness after happiness,

Keep on going and fighting the strangling chain.

Never give up and don’t stop dreaming and having hope.
