Students dedicating poems to victims of earthquake in Turkey and Syria
We as a class and school have heard about and acknowledged the tragedies that have heavily impacted both Syria and Turkey. Our poems are dedicated to the victims, the people suffering and those offering help.
Shaken (by Fatmeh Ali) Shaken homes, schools, and playgrounds. Shaken people making sounds. Shaken bones blood running down. Shaken faces white as a ghost, they are now beside the mighty's throne. Shaken, a little child waiting patiently, who to tell him his mother passed recently. Shaken, people furious, where is the help? Is that stupid border now a shell? Shaken but holding their ground. Shaken but never giving up on their land. Shaken but not neglected by Allah. And I will never forget you, always remembered in my Salah.
Eternity (by Maja Arandjenlovic) Normal day, everything as usual Beauty sleep suddenly turns into eternity Shaken homes, shaken schools and shaken people
People come and people go Outside we wait in the cold, what feels like snow. Many loved ones lost, breaking hearts Prepared for the horrible incoming news followed by the disappointment of no help
Might have been forgotten but never neglected by god Because you are mighty people True fighters Because that's what Turkey is true fighters!
by Astrid Fransson Thunder strikes, not from clouds and sky but earth and soil, those outside come in to give, to care and to share with those who have lost. The earth can be kind it thrives to nourish, but don't forget that it can be cruel and steal without thought, homes taken, roads cracked, hearts break with the earth.
