SS # 54: In the News

In the news
they keep on repeating
what happened years ago.
Keep on making me
feel the pain
and the anger
at my brothers and sisters
in Islam.
No sense of decency,
no sense of respect.
O Muslims!
Why do you not follow
the best example
that has been laid out for you
on a clear path!
O Muslims!
Why do you not
observe the Quran
and treat it like it is meant to be treated:
with respect!
O Muslims!
Why are you
marking all of our foreheads
with blood
and making us all criminals
in the eyes of the West!
Why do you not let the truth
shine through?
Surely,
Islam is a sacred religion,
a pure religion,
not a religion meant to be laughed at.
If some are so blind,
do not poke their eyes with sticks,
to heal them.

painful poem, great write. so many different distortions on the truth to satisfy political goals, and the everyday man in both cultures and religions, christian and islam, are being used. manipulated. all of us are suffering.
