Who Am I? – Poem

Safi, Morocco "Who am I?" She burst into a bitter wail; "I am just a heavy burden; I am stale!" You’re the lovely princess of a fairy tale, You‘re the very woman beside the female,  **** You are the soft second half of the male, The mother, the fuel of our wheel and sail; You are the one who makes us all inhale Pure air and the bad air you get us exhale.  **** You’re behind, boosting us and never rail At ou ...

Good Morning – Poem

By Ghizlane Radi - Casablanca After a sleep that lasted too long, After a talk that was thought wrong. My gem woke up in a plastic century, Celebrated her holy anniversary. Goddess of herself and her own, Worshiped by night and dawn. My gem comes in the form of a breath, It stands among us in imperfect health. My gem comes in all colors and forms, To finally be raped in college dorms. My gem was sold too ch ...

A White Lie – Poem

Marrakech If you meet him, tell him I don’t believe his lie For I know his love for me won’t easily die **** How could he act like he has already flipped the page Pretend that in a relationship he is to engage Be wed to someone else and live in the golden cage Fool everyone to believe he’s the one and only sage **** How could the man I loved think of such a con Did he not find anyone but me to pull it on Li ...

What Ails You, Dear?

Tunis Instead of learning to walk in the blue And learning not to feel the pain of my tear, Come back before you are gone, O Dear! Come back before telling me 'adieu' I am afraid you will get lost in the blue knowing not what to say or do. You will add another pain to my pain You will get lost and blame it on me. Last night, I had a dream And your shadow fell on me. I am afraid of the days, O Dear, That wou ...

The United Nations through the Eyes of an Occupied Arab – Poem

Oujda- By Mohammed Zeriouh   We were told the UN would resolve all our conflicts By the sane wisdom of its objective specialists. We were told later it’d rethink our security So that we would enjoy our innate humanity. We were told it’d intervene unconditionally To reclaim our alienated statehood peacefully. We were told the UN is ‘’God’s Eye‘’ on this vast earth, So vigilant to the value of life and i ...

Mirage summer – Poem

By Lina Aissa - Kenitra I was infancy A blossoming white lilac Innocence, purity incarnate All I knew was him, My world he was I adored my reflection in his pupils A smile on his face was my nirvana **** Nevertheless, being with him a dream was Me on top of his shoulders, Swaying along the shore Climbing sand dunes, chasing crows Piling up seashells, Clustering their debris in the palm of our hands Far from ...

Blood Donation – Poem

Safi, Morocco Here is my precious blood, The dearest I’ve ever had, My parents’ and my legacy By true decree, not fallacy. ****  Here’s my scarlet blood,  With my love dyed in red; Its white globules are a balm Transporting peace and calm,  **** Here is my blood dripping Out with red and while petals, Sly messengers to hospitals Booing out death’s slipping;  **** Here’s my blood to re-use Bearing my traits ...

Farewells – Poem

By Minyar Mrabti - Gabes, Tunisia Farewell, dear pure love, dear sweetness  Farewell is the inevitable phase A futuristic dryness, I see And shall the ever-lasting humdrumness be Yes I'am vain without she Mercy, I request from this time on me Take the fastest road, and let the reunion be For this love's flames do burn the space O she is beauty, O she is grace The emotional stability, slipped words did kill ...

I am Black – Poem

Safi – Morocco White inside, despite my black skin; That’s the contrast of life, I imagine. Just like you,i have got light red blood; My heart sings life in drowning flood; My white smile proves my innocence From a charge that is clear nonsense; I’m black; if you can’t stand the evidence, Ask nature to revise both our existence.  **** Ask, before, about our ancestors’ history, About mine’s struggle for free ...
