Rifle and violin by: Ali Taha Alnobani

Song Against War

Helicopters were over us
Noise and fuss
Yesterday with orchestra
And today in battle
My life seems like a shuttle
The violin that was touching my neck
Became today a rifle
The tune of dancing and love
Just now became blood and pus
Noise and fuss
And now behind a tree
Trying to press on the trigger
Feeling my daughter Julie
Calling me
Don't shoot
Don't shoot
Oh my God
Is this a rifle
Or a violin!!

  2. It is indeed a difficult period of time, but poetry can really add joy to your life, aside from all the crying. A great blog for couples indeed. Good job! My team of academized really likes your work.
