In response to Israa Al Banna by Olivia McMorris

The land

The sea of tears will drain away

People will rejoice to see their family

Stars will be littered with hope and joy

The cry no longer fills the air

The darkness will clear and life will grow

Colour will fill the streets in plants

Laughter is the only noise

This is the land


Waves crashed

Now they are calm

The dark sea is now clear blue

People are swimming, splashes are flying in the air

Fish are brushing past your feet

No large metal boats will take up the sea

This summer sun will reflect in your eyes

This is the sea


The sky is blue and dotted with clouds

The squawk of birds echo

No planes or helicopters will ruin the sky

At night the sunset is red

In the morning a colourful pink

This is the sky
