Lost Feelings by Masi Al Reem Al Fayomi

Mother, where am I on this planet?

Who am I?

Mother, I am not a child like the rest of the children.

I do not hear but the music of pain

I do not smell but the smell of blood

Mother, why am I lost between the dry pieces of bread?

Between my toys that got destroyed by the war

Between every tale of bombing and killing and striking

Mother, hold me a little

I am a child that carries burdens larger than him in this unjust planet.
