Bentalha

Bentalha I Randa Aimour
i was born in a country
where the skies are blue
and tangerine
and every color in between
i was born in a country
where women were slaughtered
where markets were bombed
where poets were murdered
i was born in a country
that made martyrs out of families
orphans out of children
widows out of wives
and monsters out of men
i was born in a country
scarred by war
with turmoil still brewing
i was born in a country
where amnesia is self imposed
where traitors run free
and murderers govern us
