A Poem by Shirin Fazel-Dedicated to the Somali People

A new dawn rises,

let’s bury weapons,

hatred,

clan divisions,

ignorance,

injustice,

personal interest.

A new dawn rises,

let’s leave behind

the bitter taste

of being a refugee,

of the young who die without a name and a gravestone,

swallowed by the sea and by the desert.

A new dawn rises,

let’s build our country

with pride,

dignity,

respect.

A new dawn rises,

let’s cure our wounds

with love,

brotherhood,

forgiveness,

faith. 

By : Shirin Ramzanali Fazel
