Abel Poem Example

A Genocide Story- My Mother's Eyes

They dragged my mother away
kicking and screaming
arms outstretched towards
my little sister
who lay dying on the ground
her lips parched
her eyes sunken
her wasted arms reaching out
“Myreik (Mother), don’t leave me!”
 
My father pulled my mother away 
the young soldier’s grasping hands
the one who had violated her
the one who now sneered
“Keep moving….she will be dead
Before nightfall.”
 
I hurried after them
stumbling through my tears
afraid of being left behind
I turned for one last look
There she lay…her eyes closing
left behind to join the
the dead along the path
my sister….
 
That night I didn’t hear her cry
or complain as the soldiers
dragged her away
she was beautiful
my mother
with eyes the color
of the sea
eyes that danced
and twinkled
like stars on a clear night
eyes that smiled
eyes that embraced
eyes that spoke
what words couldn’t say
I fell asleep to the sound of my father’s weeping
 
“Wake up,” I heard her say
as I fought to keep my dreams alive
my eyes fluttered open
I closed them to the hungry faces
I closed them to the filth on her dress
I searched her eyes
calm and glassy
they looked past me
not seeing

In them I read
no pain
no joy
no recognition
no….life!

Tears sprang to my eyes
tears for the death of my sister’s body
tears for the death of my mother’s soul…
 
My mother’s eyes
my mother’s eyes...
They haunt me still. 

Eileen Manassian

Though this is a fictitious write, the events depicted did happen during the Armenian Genocide in 1915 by the Ottoman Turks. One million and a half Armenians were marched into the desert in what has come to be known as the Death March. My mother's family were fortunate. They were able to run away in time. They relocated to Lebanon. My mother was a refugee at 14 years of age. She and her two sisters suffered poverty and had to work hard to make a living for the family. Their fate could have been worse. April 24 marks 100 years since that event. Not all countries have recognized the genocide. Unfortunately, America is one of them. 

 If you want to read an account of those days, read The Sandcastle Girls. Read of how woman were tied to stakes as the soldiers rode past on their horses and decapitated them. Read of how the orphaned children were gathered at night and put in caves and burned alive. Read of how the woman marched naked...their wounds festering, their hair matted...almost inhuman. Read of how women committed suicide rather suffer rape while others disfigured themselves to go unnoticed. History cannot deny the genocide. If justice is not served here...it will be....one day. God told Cain..."the blood of your brother Abel is crying out to me." The blood of these martyrs cries out today for recognition.
