Picture of Baghdad today

The Saddest Thing – poem by an anonymous Iraqi from May 2005

Looking up

Seeing hate

Who's slowly becoming life's mate

People talking about the lost lives

About the disturbed hearts and sickened minds

So many innocent lives buried

So many hopes and dreams shattered

So many sleepless nights from now until forever

By the casket tears fall

Losing friend after friend

Time after time

It's getting old

We lost the faith and hope of the world

We lost love and replaced it with violence and harsh words

Wishing danger wasn't in the day

Wishing people would simply walk away

News keep on coming out

Another got shot

Another committed suicide

We'll never see what's going on

Until the days end and everyone is gone.............?
