Ashura

Intolerable cruelty
Men playing God
uncompassionately.
Shooting squads, bombs, tanks
take the lives of Shiites.
Muslims are Muslims are Muslims
submitters to Allah.
Not to be killers of one another
brothers and sisters and life.
Condemnation, Damnation, and Murder.
We are nothing
but slaves to our Creator
with a test to be worthy of Paradise.
Not here to fight
nor exude might.
But humble servants prostrating to Him,
peaceful and loving.
Blood, carnage, smoke, fire, bombs tearing apart Earth and flesh
All this fills the streets tonight.
Savagry.
Karbala, Hussein, Ahl al-Bayt
For you my heart bleeds on Ashura night.
