taliban

T	hose beautiful little girls you tried to kill
A	 s they waited in their school van at the end of the day
L	ive another day to remind you, once again, you've failed!

I	n terrible suffering, yet they shine for the whole world to see
B	e it known, innocent blood cries for better tomorrows
A	nd like the dust beneath the feet of these little ones
N	ever will you rise to the heights for which you murder to attain!

    A beautiful condemnation of acts and deeds of murderers called Taliban. Your poem exposes them. God bless you.Welcome back Annalise. Poetrysoup and your readers missed your awesome poetry. Thanks for your kind comments on my poem The Cry of Heart. No it is not real. It is a fiction. During your absence my collection of poems titled The Rainbow of Dreams was published in USA by Createspace of Amazon. You can view the book on Amazon by title of Mohammad Yamin Iraqi.
